    Sorry. I am one of the unusual women who it didn't do much for (though I tried to persuade myself it did for a while). I quit kidding myself when I noticed that I was starting to slip into depression. Lot of women out there that it is a miracle for and I was high risk for the depression (just desperate for the increase in milk) so don't think I am typical.

    • my surprise baby: the one and only D-Man born 3 weeks late (5/5/08) at 9 lbs 14 oz and 21.5 inches, and
    • the shock H-Girl born about a week late (10/7/09) at 8lbs 15oz and 20.75 inches.


    If I am here I am covered in baby (probably two) and fighting for control of the keyboard.

    Family beds are awesome

    Wondering if you have PPD? Take the screening and see your doctor. You deserve to feel better.

    I used it, had no side-effects, and found it helpful. In addition, I was taking fenugreek and blessed thistle, and also pumping every 2 hours during the day and every 3 at night using a hospital-grade pump (a Medela Lactina). Of all the things I did, I would say that the combination of Reglan and lots of pumping with a high-quality pump were the most helpful. I think the Reglan would have helped on its own, but my feeling was that the hospital-grade pump significantly increased its efficacy.

    I am taking it right now, and it has been a huge help for me! My supply went up within a couple days. I haven't has any side effects, if anything, I'm doing better emotionally than I used to be. I know that is unusual though.

    I took it but as an anti-nausea when i was pg. It did work for me but after about a month I ended up very jumpy. I had a lot of nervous energy and could not sit still or concentrate.

    I am taking Reglan and have noticed a little increase in supply. Weighing my LO before and after feeds, I have increased to him getting 2 oz per feeding up from 1 1/2 oz for a net increase of about a 1/2 oz. I am currently taking mothers milk tea hoping for more... Good luck!
