    Re: Help with Legal rights!

    I have a partial update. The doctor is now willing to allow the baby to come once a day to nurse.

    This is not ideal, but at least he won't "forget how"

    Can you imagine what he is going...

    Re: Starting to Get Discouraged

    An SNS helped me. Once baby is nursing, you can't measure supply. But the great news is that you do not have to! You only have to watch baby. If you use the SNS it is easy. You simply latch baby...

    Re: I Think it's time

    Who says that you cannot wean off the domperidone? I did. Just wean off 10 mg per week. Take it slowly. I lost 12 pounds when I did, too. I felt so much better.

    She is exactly the age where nursing strikes happen. Keep pumping. She will come back. Pump as often as she used to nurse and then when she comes back her milk will be waiting. :hug
