Hi! Thanks for getting back to me. Weight gain has been slow: born at 6#6oz and this week he was 8#6oz -- he will be two months old on Thursday. The IBCLC we were working with didn't catch his lip tie but an IBCLC at a LLL meeting did and that was revised 10 days ago. Feedings were better after that but not significantly better. What seemed to make the most difference was the increased milk after the domperidone started kicking in. My breasts would feel full--not rock hard, just heavy with milk - and my LO was much more aggressive at the breast and seemed satiated. Then, Sunday, the milk just seemed to go away. They were full for the morning and afternoon feedings and then in the evening, they didn't feel full and when I went to pump, I got almost nothing (less than an ounce) whereas the day before I was getting any 1½ to 2½ ounces per pump without much effort (not needing to do much breast massage or compressions during pumping). The only thing that was different was that on Saturday, I had the prescription refilled but otherwise, activity level, water intake, food intake, stress, etc., was the same. It was such a quick change, it just seemed so odd to me! I called the pharmacy and they gave me a new set of pills on the off chance something was wrong with that set but that was just today so I don't know if that was the issue yet. I'm not sure if this answers all your questions but any help or advice would be great!
