Currently I'm taking domperidone (a lower dose until my supply gets here, only 50mg daily but increasing to 80 or 100mg once my supply gets here) and more milk plus... I'm thinking of switching to MMP special blend or adding in goats rue to my MMP capsules. I've read alfalfa (sp?) helps... And metamucal? Should I add those in too?
DD has a tongue tie and my supply is low. I need to be better on pumping after and in between feedings. Her tongue and lip tie are being clipped next week (we have to travel to NY for it) so I'd like to kick my supply in the butt before then because I'm hoping she'll be able to nurse more effectively afterwards.
I'm currently taking 6 MMP capsules a day and domperidone. I'm not pumping like I should be... I need to start pumping after every feed but should I add a pumping in between feedings too.
DD has (undiagnosed by the ped as of yet) reflux and has slow weight gain. Her output seems to be fine... Lots of poo's and wets.
Any advice ladies? I should know how to do this... I relactated for my son... But this is a whole different ball game, trying to balance pumping around not one child, but a NB and a toddler. With him, I could pump religiously every 2 hours and every 4 at night. It's a lot harder to manage that now, especially when we are out and about... Thought I think once I get my supply there, it'll stay there for the most part without as much effot.
Thanks for any insight/advice ladies!
