  1. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Feeling a bit melancholy.

    My supply dipped considerably last week after a few days on 40mg and didn't respond to an extra 20mg at night, so I'm in another hormonal patch. I've had hardly any...

    Re: weaning after 3 years

    I completely agree with the other posters. You are not even remotely resembling a liar, so put that idea out of your head! :)

    The weaning process is a relationship between two people, and there is...
  3. The beauty of following your child

    Inspired by another post by a mother of a 3-year-old who is on the path to self-weaning, I wanted to reflect on the last 3.5 years with DS, my little miracle, who continues to nurse 4ish times day...

    Re: weaning after 3 years

    I should add that I'd be delighted to share thoughts and feelings with you as we both move through this process with our sons leading the way. It's a bittersweet time, but a profoundly beautiful one,...

    Re: weaning after 3 years

    I am in a similar place with my DS3.5-- we're down to 4 nurses per day, and he's gaining tremendous independence. I suspect we might make it to 4, but likely not beyond. With that said, in the spirit...
  6. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Thanks sonogirl! I've gone back and read your posts a few times over the last few months. Your words gave me the confidence to follow my plan. Lo and behold, you were right! Although my supply has...
  7. Re: Still nursing almost 16 mo old but starting to get comme

    Lead with confidence. If you nurse confidently and openly anywhere, anytime, you send a very clear no-nonsense message just through your actions.

    If you are asked if she's still nursing, an...
  8. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Supply has been doing very well at 60mg per day (20/20/20), so I've lowered my dose tonight to 50mg (20/20/10). I suspect after a few days of nursing, supply will be back up to where it was at 60mg....
  9. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Psychological update!!

    With DS now almost 3.5, I can confidently say for the FIRST time in his life that he could not only survive, but thrive, without my milk, or with just a bit!!! Wow, is that...

    Thanks Bsua65!! A metric ton of milk is hard to fathom, isn't it? :)
  11. Re: Night weaning conflicts - 3.5 yo

    I hear echoes of my DS-almost 3.5 in your description of your daughter, pteroglossus--the lying on me, the upset if I'm not facing him as he sleeps, the boring stories, loving boob manhandling, and...
  12. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Update:

    Thankfully, supply returned to normal about 2 days after I last posted. I lowered my dose from 70mg (30/20/20) to 60mg/day (20/20/20) this morning. Will report back on how supply fares! I...
  13. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Awww, thanks so much tclynx!!
  14. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    I'm now on day 5 of reduced supply. We've nursed 6ish times already today, and he was able to drink at about half those nursings. DS has been waking more frequently overnight to nurse since my drop...
  15. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    A little interim update: I've had 3 consecutive days of lower supply that haven't coincided with my typical hormonal milk supply swing symptoms. We are still nursing 6ish times for milk each day, and...
  16. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Tclynx, if you aren't in a rush to phase out the domperidone, I wouldn't hurry the taper. I have been taking it now for almost 2.5 years, and it was (I believe) instrumental in allowing me to...
  17. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Thanks ladies, I'm stoked!! Let down is slower than before (1 milisecond versus 1 minute now), but I'll take that, and DS is nursing away as happily as ever. I plan to drop another pill early next...
  18. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Week 6 update

    I'm now down to 70mg/day (30mg/20mg/20mg) with supply effectively the same as at 120mg/day!
  19. Re: 4 Month Old Still Eating Every 1-2 Hrs

    In addition to the excellent advice from the PPs, I'd ask if the same scale was used for all the recent weighings. Scale difference alone at that age can be enough to cause significant error in...

    Re: Anyone used domperidone?

    The pain and nipple shield are clues to the root cause of your difficulty. I have used domperidone successfully for over 2 years, but I would strongly advocate fixing the pain problem with a...

    How about Jack Newman's all purpose nipple ointment?

    Thanks for all your support Bsua65; it means a lot to me! DS is thankfully on the mend! :)
  23. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Week 5 update

    DS has had an awful bout of gastro, but I've still managed to drop my dose yesterday to 80mg/day (30/30/20) while maintaining a higher supply than usual. He's been awfully sick and...
  24. Re: Still Walking/Nursing Toddler to sleep, Pregnant with #

    I just wanted to chime in with some reassurance that time and maturity will also be natural aides on your side. There is a lot of maturing that will occur organically in 7.5 months. Your daughter...

    Re: When Did Your Child Self Wean?

    I'm nursing my son, now 3 years and 4 months old. I'm aiming for the gentlest self-weaning possible and can say with certainty that it will happen at or after 3y4m for us! ;)
