    Re: Mucus poop

    Green poop is often nothing to worry about. Avoiding dairy is a pretty drastic step. More often, green, mucousy poop is a result of oversupply. I'm betting that's what you're seeing, since babies...

    Re: Domperidone and monthlys?

    Dom can indirectly affect your period, because it increases the milk supply. More milk coming out = hormone changes = changes in menstruation. So it's entirely possible that you're seeing this...

    Re: If only I could quit

    How do you feel about pumping in your car, or even someone else's car that you are close to? Hang up a baby blanket in the window, put sun covers up in the windshield, turn on some music, and pump? ...

    Re: Pump recommendations?

    Most working mothers like the Medela PISA or Purely Yours/Lansinoh pumps, or a rental if you can get it. Check with your insurance company, some will cover pumps if you ask.

  9. Re: I think I'm almost ready to give up

    Some mothers with chronic oversupply find relief with green cabbage leaves put in their bra, eating things containing sage or peppermint. Hormonal BC often lowers supply, too, but some of that stuff...

    Re: Is it? Confused Dom?s

    An empty breast makes milk, so whatever you can do to get the milk out of the breast is good. Pumping or hand expression, whichever combination works best for you. I tried to hand-express after...

    Re: pumping to increase?

    I pumped every two hours during the day, and once in the middle of the night. I got better results when I pumped at the exact same time every day, my body got used to the routine and made more milk...
