Thread: Does this sound like good progress?

  1. #1

    Default Does this sound like good progress?

    Before Day 1: Squeeze breasts an milk reluntantly comes out. Looks more like colustrum with the thick sticky clear and white swirls. (Nothing when pumped)

    End of Day 2: Easier to squeeze milk out. Now appears like the white color it normally did. (But nothing when pumped)

    End of Day 3: Even easier to squeeze out.. and squirted milk! (I was giddy about squirting!) .. Nursed most of the day and never pumped so not sure. Doubtful if I got anything.

    I've been taking 3 Fenugreek, 3x daily. Also have been eating Oatmeal and trying to drink more water. I got a prescription for domperidome .. but haven't found a pharmacy that carries it yet. (However I did order from InHouse as well...)

    I found that Central FL has a breastfeeding center so I am going to go by and talk to them about some issues.. including Carli gagging at the breast w/o the nipple shield and just to get support with relactating. Also am trying to find a hospital grade pump so work on my supply. The pump I have (Medlea Swing) is okay.. but it's on the weak side and its only a single and I need a double for some power pumping sessions.

    Sure sounds like progress to me! Yay for you! Have you checked out the lowmilksupply.org website? increasing milk supply

    Renting a double pump is a good idea. Regarding the domperidone...I believe that it is not possible to get it at a pharmacy in the US.

    You can get the Dom online, but you cannot order it from Canada. They aren't allowed to ship it into the US anymore. My Peds Dr told me about that. =p
