I hope this is OK to ask/discuss this here.
Here is my problem.
So it seems like from now on, within each cycle I'll have over 2 weeks of VERY low supply, 1 weeks of supply seeming to go back up, and about a week or less of good, normal supply.
The extremely low supply has been here again for 1 week now, with no sign of coming back up. Even with the malunggay powder (on top of everything else mentioned).
My DD eats probably (based on what I've heard) like a typical toddler - some day good/great, some day next to nothing. She doesn't like drinking water.
I truly fear that this problem plus the fact that my child is a toddler well on solids may lead to weaning earlier than I had hoped for. KWIM? Like if I keep upping her solid intake to make up for the lost milk, my body will make even less, and then less... My goal is AT LEAST 2 years, and I REALLY want to nurse her much longer than that.
I've heard so much about domperidone being extremely effective, apparently (unlike herbs) with every mother. It seems very appealing to me.
But my baby is NOT an infant anymore (if she were an infant whose diet should consist mostly of BM, I would have been taking dom already), and she seems relatively happy with whatever I make, though NOT always making up for the lost milk with solids (there have been days when I don't think she got much BM nursing but still didn't eat much, if anything).
I will of course make my own decision... but if you were in my shoes, would you take domperidone?
(If my wondering makes any sense at all... . In short, I WANT to take it, I WANT to have the normal supply, I WANT my supply to reduce according to DD's lead NOT because of some crazy hormones x( I just wonder if it's advisable at this point esp. because that's what *I* want not what *she* truly needs - even though when I have plenty of milk she's more than happy to take it - that's her personality she takes whatever I make, since a newborn...)
This is so long because I want to make myself as clear as I can...
Thank you for reading and any input at all!
