My daughter is 10 weeks old and I have only a partial supply. :( I successfully nursed our first 2 children exclusively, so this is a new problem. I have been having to supplement with formula since the beginning.
I've done everything, pump like crazy + nurse around the clock, fenugreek, blessed thistle, marshmallow root, thyroid check (normal on replacement), chiropractic for my back pain. My daughter's clavicle was fractured during birth and she has a suspected sternocleidomastoid muscle injury that seems healed, but it definitely affected her sucking reflex. She seems just now "normal" in sucking ability, so that's likely why our supply is in the toilet, even though I've done everything under the sun to increase my supply. At the advice of several lactation consultants, I started domperidone. It seems like my last-ditch effort to normalize this breastfeeding relationship.
I love nursing and I don't want things to be this way :cry I'm grateful for every drop of milk we have, but having successfully breastfed two other kiddos for over a year apiece, I'm bummed about this.
My issue is this: I've been on domperidone for a week with no results. I do understand that it can take some time. I want to hear your experiences! Hoping for some encouragement.
