    Thanks to you for support, and my 2 new best friends Dom and Medela!
    Every day i get more excited that I get more and more milk. I also have been using hand expression to. I can normally get out about well at least 1 tsp up to 2tsp.

    I think i have given up on getting her back to the breast. Its a real struggle for us. Sometimes at bed time she will throw a fit to be put in her crib, so i will rock her in her room, she likes the skin to skin contact(our bellies) and she lays her head on my bare breast, i will always offer her "milkies?" but she always says no. Seeing her drink my milk from a cup now gives me that aww feeling that nursing did. Knowing she is getting the best possiable nutrition.

    Well i started pumping on May 10th so it has taken us a bit to get here. I was taking fennugreek and blessed thistle then i got the dom and it has taken off, i ran out of the herbs so for the last fre weeks it was strickly dom. I has been a long bumpy road but its smoothing out! My new goal is to make at least 16 oz. Enough for 2 bottles. Then my next goal will be 3 so i can get her off the formula!!

    Buff

    Here is where i started:
    I did 20mg 4x a day to start, but found it hard to remember so i switched to 30mg 3xs a day.
    Now i am taking 40mg 3xs a day
    But you can find the info in this link from Kellymom.com
