Brief Answer:
Can take lactare

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Lactare is a herbal capsule or supplement and there are no side effects of using this capsule.
This increases there breastmilk quantity.
Yes, you can decrease the dosing to 2 capsules per day once the milk supply is ample.
Yes, lactare can be used till exclusive breastfeeding is there.
High protein diet, plenty of fluids, rest, cumin and carom seeds also increase the breast milk.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
