Re: Feeling Discouraged
I am sorry the LC gave you such a discouraging take on your situation. I wish that instead of dismissing your hard work and the progress you have made- and I do think it sounds like you are making progress!- the LC had simply said "You're going more slowly than I would like to see, and I am not sure you should expect big results in a short timeframe. But I'm not saying that you should give up, because that's a question only you can answer for yourself. Just that you may want to adjust your expectations about what is possible, and decide what success means for you. If success for you means an oz or two a day, that's great, and probably achievable if you keep at it. If success means a full supply... Then you may not get there in a hurry."
Do you have health insurance, mama? If so, you may be able to get your doctor or midwife to prescribe Domperidone (or Reglan) for you. I took Reglan and IIRC the cost to me was about $5 for a 2 week supply- and I was taking the maximum dose. I'm not bragging- just suggesting you check with your insurance and your doctor before making the determination about how much out-of-pocket cost you're facing.
