Responding too well to Dom & supps?
This past week I was prescribed Domperidone and advised to try taking fenugreek and blessed thistle due to prolonged nipple shield use (we finally stopped using it this week) causing a diminished milk supply, but also to make the bare breast more attractive to my shield addicted LO by producing more milk and faster satisfaction at the breast.
My problem now is, that I think I'm responding to the drugs and supplements too well. The first morning after taking fenugreek and blessed thistle I leaked all over my LO and had to change her clothes. The last couple days I've been so engorged and she can't seem to empty my breasts at her feedings. Last night I was up in the night to pump just to relieve the pain (baby girly is sleeping through the night and I didn't want to wake her to feed), and pumped just over 100ml in less than 5 minutes.
I'm wondering if I should stop using the Domperidone. It's done what it was supposed to do.
My next appt is on August 8, I don't think I want to wait until then to stop using the Dom, especially with how uncomfortable I've been. I even wonder if I needed it in the first place.
