Breastfeeding with low supplyWhat homeopathic remedies can be taken to increase milk supply in nursing Mothers?
I've tried fenugreek with no success. I drink Raspberry Leaf tea, 2-3 times a day. I've also tried Ignatia Amara 12c with no success.
What other remedies are recommended, and where would I find them?

I ask this because I thought the same thing. My baby would nurse often and a little at a time. I never felt a strong let-down and I was NEVER able to pump even a drop. Some women are just never able to pump.
My baby was also crying after he'd eat and it seemed as if he was having trouble nursing, but it was actually reflux making it hard for him to swallow, so he'd get upset and pull away. To me it seemed like he was crying for more or because he wasn't getting anything.
At 2 mos he weighed about 16 lbs, so the pedi said I had enough to feed him and a few kids on the block! ;)
Judge your supply by your baby's weight gain. Make sure he doesn't have reflux.
Drink water when you're thirsty (if you are getting thirsty right before breastfeeding or at the very start you're probably fine) and stay away from substances that can decrease supply, i.e. mint, chamomille, etc. Some people recommend oatmeal, but be careful with this because too much can cause allergic reactions in the baby and also cause gastro-intestinal issues alone with reflux.
About the homeopathy, I have no clue! ;p

during homoeopathy the following medicines are very effective in cases of Agalactia;
1. Agnus Castus-Q 2. Urtica Uren-Q
You may take Agnus.Cast-q 30 - 40 drops per dose in a little milk thrice or 4 times a day
and will found improvement in a couple of days. Urtica.uren. is also worthmentioning.
