    Re: Can I really do this?

    This has been such a journey so far. Not a good few days. I only managed to pump 5.75oz in the last 24hrs. That is the lowest for about 2 weeks and feels like a real step backwards. I was using the...

    Thanks. I'm going to hire the symphony again for 2weeks and see what it does for my supply if anything, and then rethink the process then.

    Re: Can I really do this?

    As I wrote in your post, 30mg of dom really helped kickstart my milk properly. It has slowed since I dropped a tablet but I am not taking medication long-term when I am giving my girl breast milk. I...
  17. Re: My relactation journey. Advice and support much apprecia

    30mg per day really helped my supply. It could be the boost you need to kickstart your milk. I don't know much about sns since my girl wont latch so wouldn't work for me.

    Re: Can I really do this?

    My supply seems to go down as the day goes on despite me pumping every 2 hrs and taking my fenugreek etc. I seem to have leveled out at 5-6oz per day. I don't seem to be increasing.

    Re: Not going well

    How's it going sweetpea? Our situations are so similar even though our reasons leading us here are different. Latching seems a no no for us.
