Potential side effects of fenugreek are nausea, diahrea and gas. Can these symptoms manifest in the breast fed baby of a mother taking fenugreek to boost estrogen and breast milk production?

Women have used the spice fenugreek since ancient times in the Middle East, North Africa, and India to stimulate milk flow.
There are no apparent side effects in babies whose mothers take the herb.
(I could not find any research to support this.)
Talk with your doctor if you are unsure about taking Fenugreek.
