    I emailed Dr Newman and this is what he said!


    1. Can taking one 10mg pill away cause this much drop in supply?
    1. Yes, it's possible, but I don't know.

    2. Should i go back up to 40mg 3x a day?
    2. If you wish. I'm not sure why you dropped the dose.

    3. Should i pump back to 4-5 times a day?4. Should i do #2 & #3
    3.4 You seem to know the answers here. Yes, you should if you want to maintain the milk supply.

    5. Could it be a possible pregnancy since dom dosent work in pregnanc(for
    a 6-7oz drop in week with only taking 10mg away?)
    5. If you were pregnant, your milk supply would drop a lot more than that and will continue dropping.

    For general breastfeeding information, see www.drjacknewman.com


    Not really much help but I went back to pumping 4-5x a day since the boys are in school again and i am back to where i was.
    Although i had to get a shot for amigraine yesterday and i have to pump and dump.
    At least i had a few bags in the freezer so i didnt to much!
    Btw i am still at 40-30-40

    Hey mama, glad to hear Dr. Newman responded to your questions! Sounds like you were still able to slightly decrease your dose of Dom, but still maintain pump output, as long as you pump enough times?? I guess you are still probably wondering why your supply dropped so much for a few days, but now that you are back to normal, are you going to continue working on weaning off the Dom??

    My supply had dipped for a few days recently, and I thought it was because AF was getting ready to visit, but now my supply is coming back up and no AF (yet) so not sure what happened with that. Anywho, I am taking Fenugreek and Dom 30-30-30, and I am pumping just about enough for my DD to take to daycare, and that was what I was hoping for. Nursing her is going great, so I'm really pleased with my progress. I'm afraid to stop taking the Dom for fear my supply will drastically drop!

    Keep us posted on your progress!!

    Ya i think my hormones are out of wack. I keep having mood swings and and the pre AF symptoms, fatigue and hungery all the time and a bit of cramping but no AF.

    I read somewhere where someone said that there hormones were battling it out and i think that is what mine are doing. If it keeps it up im going to get an appt with the DR for some labs or something.

    Oh, I've also been totally hungry ALL the time, tired, and some minor crampiness too! I thought it was because AF was getting ready to visit, but nothing yet. Now I'm all worried I'm pregnant... I'm not on any BC, and DH and I haven't exactly been completely careful I wonder if the symptoms we've been feeling are side effects of the Dom??

    Well, still no AF here, which is definitely not the norm for me, as I've had a regular cycle every 23-24 days, ever since the baby was 6 weeks old. I took a home pregnancy test, so I know I'm not pregnant and I guess I should be happy that I get a break from AF!! I did really enjoy not having to deal with AF while I was pregnant, and was disappointed that it came back so soon after the baby was born. Also, the weird symptoms I was feeling seem to have subsided... I was feeling them right around the time AF would have been visiting... hmmm...

    I havent seen "AF" since june!
    Mine came back when dd was like 3mo old!
    I guess its the dom supressing it which is fine with me but we live in a small town and i hate going to the dollar general every mo to buy a pregnancy tests kwim? They look at me crazy anyhow since i have my 3 children and usually one or two of my neices/nephews!
    Oh well! Who cares right!

    Ok, I'll have to take back my previous statement... AF showed up this morning And I was really looking forward to having a break! I guess my cycle lengths must be messed up cause of the hormone changes the dom causes... They were usually 23-24 days apart, but the last one was only 19 days, and this was was 26 days! Anywho, my milk production (pump output) doesn't seem to be affected, so that part is good... Guess I'll just have to keep hoping AF goes away!!
