    Smile Any relactators?

    Are there any mama's relactating out there? I would love to here your stories or just how it's going. I have been relactating for about 3 and half months and it's going okay. I taking domperidone and it works for me really well only thing was that I was hoping to wean off the med but my milk almost dried up so I had to start taking it again. Although everything I have read on the Newman site said some moms have to take it until they wean. So anyway tell me your stories if there are any others out there. I have been feeling kind of alone in my relactating quest lately.

    I personally don't have relactation exp. but there was a mama on there awhile back that relactated. She hasn't been on in a while but I sent her an email to see if she checks in.

    Good luck. Hopefully more mamas will come through with experience.

    I pumped and took dom.,fenugreek, blessed thistle and nursing mom teas from tradtional medicinals and yogiteas. My favorite was the yogiteas it tastes better. Lexi never would latch on again so i just pumped. I found it easier to pump at the computer while i checked my mail and stuff, before i knew it 30min was gone in no time. Sometimes i would pump for longer just not paying attention the time.

    Another thing that helped was after i pumped i would hand express and could always get more out that way.

    I bumped up my Update! from when i was doing it. feel free to check my other posts on here.

    I hope some of this helps
