I'm so happy that I found this forum I need help & encouragement!! I have just begun trying to relactate & just don't know what to expect in terms of how long it will take to see any milk. My LC said we'd know in a week if it was gonna work & so far, no milk has appeared.
My story: I had a breast augmentation & lift that was performed through the areola. My surgeon as well as my OB both told me I'd never bf. So, I basically didn't try too hard My ds wouldn't stay latched on so I just assumed that he wasn't getting anything. BUT then, once we were home from the hospital, I was leaking after being in the shower so I put him to the breast & I heard him swallow a few times! I had really struggled with bf'ing my older 2 dd's & went into this pregnancy thinking I'd ff. My dh (who now says he's sorry) reminded me how bad my bf'ing experiences had been before & encouraged me to go forward with ff'ing. So, we did. Fast forward to now. My ds is 5.5 mo & is allergic to everything under the sun (or so it seems). He has to drink an extremely expensive, amino acid-based formula. He is a little behind developmentally & I think it's b/c of lack of good nutrition.
I've been taking Reglan for 6 days (10 mg 4xday) and pumping for 5 days (8 or 9 xday). Would Domperidone be better? My ob wouldn't prescribe it. She said it isn't safe Is it too soon to see any milk or should I be seeing something by now? Even a drop would greatly encourage me!!
