My DS is now 3mos old. Breastfeeding was a challenge from his first week. Poor latch, bleeding nipples, engorgement leading to decreased supply which began bottle feeding. But the worst was his hospitalization and surgery during his 3rd week of life. The stress of all this killed my supply. I went down to mere drops of milk. His hospital stay all but cemented his bottle feedings but I still offered the breast occasionally. He was very uncomfortable at hospital so I didn't want to frustrate him by forcing empty breasts on him. So more and more the breast disappeared. But I really wanted to breastfeed. I got good encouragement at hospital and within 2 weeks of leaving hospital I got an appt with a lactation consultant. She basically said my milk had left and I needed to relactate. Pumping sessions, hand expressing, nursing, blessed thistle, fenugreek, nursing teas, you guys know the drill. It was very stressful and frustrating not getting results and irritating your baby with empty breasts. So I stopped the regimen. My hubby thinks our son is doing well without the breast. Our ped is always happy with his development at his appts considering his ordeal so early in his life. But I still think about breastfeeding. Am I depriving my son? Should I have tried harder? I ordered Domperidone and it finally arrived last week. I haven't touched it. I've been reading up on side effects and the fact that it does enter the breast milk and I get scared. My son is happy and healthy, my husband is happy, is worth it to risk possible long term side effects to me and my son and start this drug? We never know what could be discovered down the road about this drug. Should I really try to breastfeed again with a 3 month old? I'm not even looking to nurse exclusively. I know the benefits of breastfeeding. I was breastfed for 9 months. I am on FMLA leave right now. So should I put my son and I back on the road to breastfeeding with Domperidone? My breasts are empty and I haven't offered the breast in over a month. He most likely won't want anything to do with my breasts.
