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

    Aww, thanks ladies! You're terrific!

    UPDATE: my milk supply tanked in moving from 10mg to 0mg of Dom per day. I watched and waited for a few weeks, then decided toward the end of May to resume a...
  2. Re: Supply dropping for nursing toddler

    I hear you! It's completely maddening and leaves you feeling like you're not in control of your body, doesn't it. I'm experiencing the exact same thing now as my body tries to resume cycling after...
  3. Re: HELP PLEASE! 18 Month Old Will ONLY NURSE

    Yes!!!! This was my DS through about 2. He only started to eat more than a bite or two of solids around 2, and it was only around 2.25 that he would eat a meal a day. We strongly suspect sensory...
  4. Re: You know you're nursing a toddler when...

    Awww, I love these!

    Here's one from DS3.5: two nights ago, while DH and I were watching a movie with headphones in our room, DS sleepwalked into our room, clambered onto the bed, snuggled up to...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. 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...
  18. 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...
  19. 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. :)
  20. Re: You know you're nursing a toddler when...

    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...
  21. 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...
  23. 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...
