Here is a little about my story...
My little girl born 2 weeks early at 6lbs 12oz. Took her 4 weeks to get back to birth weight, so at 3 weeks PP my LC had me start supplementing with EBM. We concluded it must be a milk supply issue because breastfeeding management was good. I have been taking domperidone, fenugreek, blessed thistle, brewers yeast, oatmeal, alfalfa, More Milk Special Blend, teas, cookies and still haven't been able to really noticeably increase my supply. She continues to have slow weight gain, but is meeting all milestones. All investigations have come back normal, so we don't believe there is a medical problem to her weight gain.
I have been discussing with my LC about possible insufficient glandular tissue, my breasts have always been small, but also didn't increase very much in size during pregnancy or PP. I never really got engorged, only felt "fuller" on day 4 PP. I just got a prescription for Metformin, to see if that might help with glandular development and milk supply. Has anyone tried this? What has your response been? How long should I wait to notice an increase? Thanks!
