Will fenugreek and milk thistle increase my milk supply if it is getting really low for my 8 month old? I am afraid if mot producing enough.

In brief: No

No, eating any specific food is not going to increase your milk supply.
Drinking more liquids might help.

In brief: Possibly

Breast milk supply can decrease at 8months b/c your baby is now beginning to eat solids and does not need as much milk as they needed before.
To keep your supply well, make sure you drink lots of water (1/2 your body weight in ounces), no caffeine, manage stress, sleep well and fenugreek has been used to help with milk supply (try it).
