  1. Re: Anybody wean from domperidone and maintain supply?

    Yes, me. I have a thread detailing my process:

    http://forums.llli.org/showthread.php?122089-Hugs-please-Tapering-off-domperidone-at-3-25

    In a nutshell, I tapered off a dose of 120mg/day to...
  2. Re: Is breastfeeding really the problem?

    Ah, the old " he'll be hungry if you leave him long enough" argument. It works, unless it doesn't! Typically, if a mother has had to take domperidone for a long time to maintain supply for a child...
  3. Re: 27 month old only weighs 23.5 lbs

    Sure, I'd be happy to share that info, sweet mama.

    19 months: 10.3kg (~25%ile weight)
    26 months: 12.6kg (~50%ile weight)
    30 months: 12.6kg (~38%ile weight)
    36 months: missing
    42 months: 17.1kg...
  4. Re: 27 month old only weighs 23.5 lbs

    My DS was low in weight percentiles (10-15%ile) as compared with height (95%ile) and had stalled in weight gain at 9 months. I visited Dr. Newman and started domperidone just after 1 year and...
  5. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    DOM IS DONE!!!!!!

    My breasts are working beautifully unaided, DS is happy, for the first time in over 4 years my body looks like it's going to ovulate soon! This was the right decision at the...
  6. Re: Is breastfeeding really the problem?

    Good heavens! I'm sorry that's the messaging you're receiving from someone who ought to know better. You must be beyond frustrated with the medical run-around and lack of diagnostic success you've...
  7. Re: Is breastfeeding really the problem?

    Breastfeeding is certainly not "causing" speech or feeding issues. How absurd of them to suggest that, and what a lazy approach to medical care! They could as well suggest that breathing or urinating...
  8. Re: Weaning -- what's the next after don't offer don't refus

    Okay, your daughter sounds EXACTLY like my son with respect to sleep needs. Part of it is just chronological/neurological maturity, for which time is on your side. As I said earlier, it was around...
  9. Re: Weaning -- what's the next after don't offer don't refus

    I'm nursing my 3.5 year old DS, including down for nap, and I can understand how constantly nursing through nap would be a recipe for crazy-making. I did it for about 18 months! IIRC, it was around...
  10. Re: Transition to cup - how should it work?

    I wouldn't stress. My DS3.5 only got the hang of drinking from a straw around 3. He was effectively EBF at the tap (hehe!) through 2, with some sippy cups of water after 1. Around 2.5, he began to...
  11. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Down to 10mg/day (10mg/0/0). This is the home stretch! Low milk the last few days, but I'll let you know when supply rebounds. :) My body has been giving me the strongest signs of ovulation yet, so I...
  12. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Update number who-knows-what:

    As is usually the case, supply did rebound fully after the dip at 40mg. I transitioned to 20mg/day (10/0/10) two days ago and have sustained 4-5ish feeds per day. I...
  13. Re: Almost 3 years nursing and not liking it

    The longer nursing sessions are all about comfort and intimacy. If you can meet that need in part by other affection after you wrap up a nursing session (less so at night, as nursing is your tool for...
  14. Re: Almost 3 years nursing and not liking it

    It is normal for patience with and enjoyment of supporting our children's wants and needs to wax and wane. I'm nursing DS3.5 and, if you've read my domperidone thread, you'll see it's been fraught...
  15. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Bfwmomof3, thanks for your extremely kind message! I feel like we're in a good place and that, overall, the Dom taper has been exactly what was needed. :)

    DS3.5 after nursing on one side upon waking in the morning: "Mama, your milk was tasty. I've nursed all the love out of this side, and now I'm going to nurse all the milk and love out of the other...
  17. 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...
  19. 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...

    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...
  22. 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...
  23. 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...
  24. 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....
  25. 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...
