    Unhappy Help! My supply is drying up!

    Hi,

    I'm looking for some advice on what to do about my milk supply, as my 21 month-old still wants to nurse and her night-waking is getting worse since my supply has decreased so much.

    I have always had supply problems, but now it is getting to the point where the supply dips a lot every time my period is coming and it seems that after each month there is less and less milk- I don't recover what was lost during that 2 weeks or so.

    At this point, she is only getting a few sips on each breast and wants more. I have taken fenugreek and blessed thistle and they only help a very little bit. Pumping is a joke right now, as i get nothing.

    Does anyone have any advice for what I can do? Is this a situation where Domperidone could be used?

    I really didn't want to have to wean before my daughter was ready but it's looking bad...

    Thanks for your help!

    You could try Dom. If she will nurse more, that brings your supply up.

    Could you be pregnant?
