Hi my baby is 25days old. He s exclusively breastfeeding. I took 2 lactare tablets thrice daily (2-2-2) since second day of my delivery as suggested by my pediatrician as baby had dehydration on the second day due to lack of sufficient milk. After taking lactare and continuous feeding of baby my supply increases and I am exclusively breastfeeding him. And lactare tablet was stopped before I got discharged on 5the day as I got enough supply. Though my baby pee count is nearly 10 and poop count is 3 or 4 times a day, I started taking lactare capsules the same dosage since 10 days before because I had loose breast sometimes and baby feeds for more tym. I felt taking the capsules baby is taking less tym for feeding and my breast seems little heavier and full before feeding but not engorged and all seems okay. So taking the lactare capsules gives me more confidence about my supply. So is it okay to take the lactare capsules daily 2 capsules 3 times a day (2-2-2? Is it over dosage? Does it have any side effects taking 6 capsules a day,
