While it's not a proven method, I find that a frothy glass of beer amps up my milk supply. But, remember to pump and dump if you drink too much.

Ummm... 1 beer isn't going to hurt your child...just wait about an hour after you drink it before you feed, if you're so worried about it getting into their system! The advise was to have a beer no get sloshed then breast feed your baby!

I recommend light beer, such as Budwiser with Lime. Delicious! For the puritanical among us, I think the bug in your butt is doing more damage than a beer.

Yes, go ahead and put alcohol in your baby's system in the name of upping your milk supply. *insert eye roll here*. Use the fenugreek. You might smell like syrup, but it works and doesn't have the potential to harm your child.
