    Re: Any thing else I could try?

    :hug Have you thought about checking thyroid function? That can affect supply. I also agree with getting an SNS in order to increase time at the breast while offering the supplement. My DS is 20...
  2. Re: Domperidone, pumps, and what to do...

    It sounds like things are going better. That is great! I hope things continue to improve for you mama! :hug:gvibes
  3. Re: More Milk Plus Special Blend Tincture?

    Glad the grape juice is helping! :gvibes
  4. Re: Domperidone, pumps, and what to do...

    I am renting a hospital grade pump right now. Check with a local hospital or LC to see if you could get a rental if that would be more affordable right now.
  5. Re: More Milk Plus Special Blend Tincture?

    Wow, you are brave to try it on its own after smelling it! It IS awful! Even mixed with the grape juice it is gross, but tolerable. The alcohol-free is a bit better. Also, a friend found mixing it...

    Re: Lact-Aid or Medela?

    My LC started us with the Starter SNS which we used for a few weeks. When it became clear that this would be needed long-term, we switched to the full-size system. The starter is more likely to leak...
  7. Re: EPing... How do you handle being out and about?

    I have an AC outlet thing that goes in the car. It has a car adapter on one side and then has two regular AC outlets on the unit itself. I don't know what it is called and my hubby is asleep so I...

    Re: Lact-Aid or Medela?

    I think it is personal preference. I personally use the Medela b/c that's what the IBCLC at the hospital had. I use a nursing cover some places to help with being discreet, but most of the time, I...

    Re: I'm losing it!!! :(

    Have you changed the membranes on the pump? Sometimes they can have tiny tears in them from washing and handling them which will affect the suction. Also, some women see a dip in their supply each...

    Re: Metamucil to increase supply?

    orange and cherry passionfruit! :yummy Those sound so good!

    Yes, my DS had a posterior tongue-tie and lip-tie. He had them clipped at 11 weeks old and his tongue done again at almost 7 months (2...

    Re: Metamucil to increase supply?

    Being regular is good so, no harm no foul. Hopefully it will boost your supply too. Speaking of gum and tic-tacs... I am not sure what kind you have, but peppermint is not great for supply either....

    Re: Metamucil to increase supply?

    I have heard that too. It doesn't work for everyone and I don't think it has been scientifically proven, but may be worth a try. Some moms have seen it work for them. I think you just take the...
  14. Re: More Milk Plus Special Blend Tincture?

    I found that the alcohol-free version is not as bad as the regular. Also, I take it mixed with 100% purple grape juice which helps make it tolerable. I also found that the More Milk Special Blend...
  15. Re: I made an ounce!! Now how do I get her to latch again?

    Good for you mama! I am going through a similar experience with a poor latcher as a result of a posterior tongue-tie. My supply is a struggle since the baby can only do so much. I am happy to hear...
  16. Re: So happy, haven't had to use the SNS for every feeding!

    :clap I am so happy for you! It is exciting to be able to use the SNS less. Some moms have success using calcium/magnesium supplements around AF time to keep supply more steady. Keep up the great...

    Re: Nipple blisters and PAIN :(

    I am so sorry you are in such pain. :hug Sometimes the latch can look fine on the outside, but not be OK on the inside. Has your LO been checked for tongue-tie? Here is a resource that discusses some...

    Re: Nipple too big for baby's mouth?

    Has your DS been checked for tongue-tie? There are types that are not well-known and therefore often go undiagnosed. Here is some info. My DS had a type 4 tongue-tie and my nipple was always pinched...
