Background: Artificial or natural substances called galactagogues may assist the production of breast milk. [...] Key Method Methods: Seventy-five puerperal women were randomly assigned for two weeks to one of three groups: herbal tea with fenugreek (n = 25), palm dates (n = 25) or no galactagogue as control (n = 25).  Maternal milk volume was measured through manual pumping of breasts on the third postpartum day. Infants were weighed on days (0, 3, 7, &14) using an infant scale.Expand
