Woo-hoo! What great output! :clap
Woo-hoo! What great output! :clap
Way to go, mama! :clap Sounds like you are making great progress! I started taking dom (30mg, 3x per day) last Thursday (in addition to the fenugreek and other supplements I am taking), and I can already notice an increase. For example, I nursed my DD sorta later than usual this morning, and usually when I do that I can only pump at most 2oz in my morning pumping session... This morning I pumped 3.25oz! And last night after I nursed my LO and put her to bed, I pumped and got 2oz... I can usually only get about 1oz, max, so this is great! Right now my breasts feel much fuller than usual, so I am feeling confident that I am making more milk, HOORAY!! I am hoping that I can start pumping enough milk to send with DD to daycare, so we don't have to supplement with formula :ita
I changed my horn sizes and i think that it made a big differance. I was using the 24mm and i changed to the 27mm. It pulls a little of my areola in it, but i think that is what is helping, since when you bf most of it is in your lo's mouth.
I am on my last pump for the night and before this pump i had already made what i did yesterday.
I also changed the time i take the dom. Everywhere it says take it 8hrs apart and i was taking it when i woke up7-8am or so, 2-3pm and then at 10-11pm well i changed to 7-8am 12-1 and then at about 7pm. I also threw in a couple fenugreek also today.:lol
my total for today is.......20 1/2 oz :yikes:clap
I am almost to my goal of giving her total bm from a bottle. I have just 4oz more to make that goal. I am so excited!!
:clap Congrats to you! :gvibes:goodluck
Maybe I will be as lucky as you!
I think that you will do just fine. It was 5 mo since dd nursed and she didnt want to, but with her dairy allegery and frequent colds/runny noses I decided to relactate. It has taken me a while to get here. I started relactating on May 10, it took a while before i collected anyting in a bottle almost 2 weeks i think. I could express a little out by hand but not anything really cause i had to really milk it to get a few drops, but now 2 1/2 mo later i am at 20oz. It really dosent seem like a long time. wow time flys.:lol
Getting larger horns is a great idea... I will definitely have to try that! I am still using the standard 24mm horns that came with my Medela PISA, and they basically just pull the nipple into them, not much areola...
Thanks mama! :gvibes
Im up to 21 oz, nut much of a jump, but its more right! I have been getting 20-21 oz for a few days, although my brests feel full after about 3.5-4 hrs. DH is home on during the past few days,(hes an ironworker and laid off) I get so busy and forget to pump(maybe thats why i am only at 21oz:shrug) My breasts get sore and i look at the time and realize i havent pumped in 4 hrs.
OH man he needs to go back to work! Hes messin up my sechedule...:lol
Oh congrats on the progress! You're an inspiration! :clap
I know what you mean about your sched being messed up when dh is around. The same happens to me... I'm much more efficient when I'm on my own!
