More Milk Two?

DS3 is 7 months old, and still EBF. I'm 7 weeks pregnant (surprise!), and am paranoid about my milk drying up. Has anyone used More Milk Two, while nursing and pregnant? How was your milk supply, before and after?

Thanks, mamas! I want DS3 to nurse until he self-weans, but the thought of him being forced to wean before at least 12 months makes me want to cry .

I have used it and was in love. I had to stop due to an allergy to the nettles, but I recommend it HIGHLY.

I have nursed during a previous pregnancy and by 14 weeks, I was dry. This time around I had about 50% supply at 18 weeks, when I had to stop it due to my allergy response. I used it about 6 weeks with great results, it only took about 24 hours to see a change in supply.

Try it. It does taste awful, but completely worth it for us!

Thanks! I really want to try it, it's just so expensive! $55 for an 8 week supply, and I have 32-33 weeks of pregnancy left . DH says it's not in our budget, so I wonder if I can make it myself? I dunno... I want to keep nursing as long as possible, but the price is a big deterrent .

Ingredients are red raspberry leaf, nettles and alfalfa. You can get the red raspberry leaf and alfalfa fairly easily. Not sure about the nettles, since I haven't looked. Price wise though, I don't know if it would be cheaper to try to assemble the ingredients yourself.

I also suspect that you would spend more than $55 for formula for your lo in 8 weeks.

Have you checked around for prices? I know amazon.com sells it.
