  1. I feel like my supply is decreasing...

    I'm nursing DD and then pumping... Overnight she nurses one side and I pump the other. Normally I get an oz and a half to 2 oz on the side she doesn't nurse... Now I'm getting 1/2 oz. Yes, I know...

    Re: Lact-Aid or Medela?

    I'd rather put up with those annoyances than shell out like $60! I'm thinking we'll need to use it for a week, max... I've started pumping after every feeding again, for 10-15 min after the flow...

    When to change the membranes?

    I am using a hospital grade Lactina... I've had it for a little over a month... Parts were brand new... When should I check the membranes or replace them? Once a month? I pump often (though not as...

    Re: Lact-Aid or Medela?

    I can get the medela locally so that's likely what I'll go with... I'm noticing a big difference in her suck since she's had bottles after every feeding and I'm not about to go that route.

    My LC...

    Lact-Aid or Medela?

    I was just going to EP but I've changed my mind... I don't want to give up nursing... Not when I know that I could use an SNS and keep her at the breast. Even if I had to use the SNS forever, I'd...
  6. Re: EPing... How do you handle being out and about?

    Thanks ladies!

    My supply is a little low thanks to the tongue tie. I'm waiting on a shipment of domperidone (which I know works, I just am almost out and have to take a way lower dose to make what...
  7. EPing... How do you handle being out and about?

    I am using a hospital grade lactina... Not really something I can drag around on shopping days, to outings, etc. My 'at home' pump (the lactina is on loan from WIC) is an Ameda Purely Yours... I...
  8. How do I maximize my pumping output?

    I think I'm going to start EPing for DD but I need to know how to maximize my pumping output. Right now, I'm not pumping often but when I do, I get anywhere between .5 oz to 1.5 oz. She's taking...

    How do I relax?

    I know I need to relax and stop letting it all get to me...

    DD isn't really growing... She's stalled in her weight gain (she was born at 7lbs 9oz, dropped to 6lbs 12 oz and is 7lbs 10oz at 1...
  10. Re: What else can I take to help? And what else can I do?

    LOL!

    Thanks! I don't think Im going to add anything new in... I'm just going to keep up what I'm doing and pray that the domperidone gets here this week vs. next. Friday would be a week from the...
  11. Re: What else can I take to help? And what else can I do?

    Would it be more beneficial to make ALL of my pumpings 'power pumpings'? She's nursing every 2 1/2 ish hours so I'm planning on nursing her and then pumping in between feedings. If I do 10 min on, 10...
  12. Re: What else can I take to help? And what else can I do?

    We weaned off the nipple shield just days before she ended up in the hospital. She won't latch with it now at all! I tried when we came home because my breasts are less full and the nipple don't come...
  13. Re: What else can I take to help? And what else can I do?

    I didn't! She's 4 weeks.

    I've been on the dom since week 2 or 3. We were doing great until she got sick and landed in the hospital for 3 days. I stopped taking everything I was taking to increase...

    Re: Metamucil to increase supply?

    That much I knew... I'd been avoiding those... But I like orange and the cherry passion fruit, lol.

    Thanks mama! I read in another thread that your LO has a posterior tongue tie too? Have you...

    Re: Metamucil to increase supply?

    I figure that while I'm waiting on the domperidone, I may as well give it a try, kwim? Worse thing is that it will do nothing but regulate me.

    I didn't know that about artificial sugars... Guess I...

    Metamucil to increase supply?

    I've heard that it can work? How much, how often, etc?

    I'm going to buy some today... I need to get this supply kickin'!
  17. Re: More Milk Plus Special Blend Tincture?

    Thanks!

    Someone recommended getting geletain capsules from my health food store and putting the tincture in there and taking it... NEVER woulda thought of that but that would work too!

    I...
  18. What else can I take to help? And what else can I do?

    Currently I'm taking domperidone (a lower dose until my supply gets here, only 50mg daily but increasing to 80 or 100mg once my supply gets here) and more milk plus... I'm thinking of switching to...
  19. More Milk Plus Special Blend Tincture?

    Is it awful tasting?

    I've had my share of tinctures since week 37 of pregnancy and am really over the awful tasting crap. But... It's cheaper to buy the special blend than it is to buy MMP...

    Re: Milk freezing question

    Thanks!

    I'll just give it to her via spoon instead of freezing it. I don't have bags to freeze in right now anyway. But at least now I know about chilling before freezing for when we go out in...

    Milk freezing question

    I started pumping for my DD to increase my supply (tongue tie caused issues). I have some milk that I've put in the refrig (no older than 48 hours now) but I don't want to give her a bottle. We've...
  22. Re: Advice about taking prescription meds

    I'm also taking domperidone... I haven't noticed a change in supply yet (but I've been bad about taking it regular too). I just increased my dose from 60mg to 90mg. The only side effect I have...
  23. Those with posterior tongue tie experience

    My IBCLC told me DD has a type 3 or 4 tongue tie... We've seen 2 ENT's and 1 pediatric dentist... 1 ENT says 'no way does she have a tongue tie, she has perfect mobility of her tongue!'. The 2nd ENT...
