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

    Thanks Bsua65!! A metric ton of milk is hard to fathom, isn't it? :)
  3. 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...
  4. 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...

    Awww, thanks so much tclynx!!
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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!
  11. 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...

    Re: Infected Bleb

    How about Jack Newman's all purpose nipple ointment?

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

    Thanks for all your support Bsua65; it means a lot to me! DS is thankfully on the mend! :)
  15. 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...
  16. 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! ;)
  18. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Thanks mommal!

    Update: Week 3/4

    I had another hormonal dip in supply that extended from late Sunday to mid-Wednesday, so I delayed reducing my dose from 100mg to 90mg/day from Monday until...

    Re: catching the first egg

    Luteal phases outside times of hormonal transition tend to be invariant within an individual and across individuals. Standard ranges are 10-14 days. The first postpartum luteal phases tend to be...
  20. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Week 2 update

    Last week's taper went smoothly. I had a hormonal dip in supply by late week, but supply rebounded to regular levels once my body returned to homeostasis. I'm comfortable dropping a...
  21. Re: Hugs please-Tapering off domperidone at 3.25

    Aww, greatestjoy, your little man sounds awesome! It's hilarious that we're at opposite ends of the spectrum; great for a dose of perspective. :) (Just being able to see the humor in that would have...
  22. Re: On-demand Nursing=Demanding Child?

    This is so beautiful that I had to call it out. Nursing is literally liquid love.

    Week 1 of Dom taper

    After a session with my doctor and IBCLC last week, I'm beginning my taper off domperidone this week. Yesterday was my first day of 110mg/day (40mg/40mg/30mg) and I am pleased...

    Re: Weaning a 3 year old

    First, congratulations on 3 years of nursing! That's an outstanding accomplishment.

    I would also like to reassure you that your daughter will, indeed, self-wean. If you went around and counted the...
  25. Re: When co-workers bash on breastfeeding

    Not responding to his comment doesn't have to mean agreement. :) I am a vocal advocate of full term nursing, but I save my energy with the troglodytes.
