    Or maybe Dr Newman. He generally responds very quickly to emails.

    Doctors and pharmacists know next to nothing about meds. Nothing. Oh that is so scary. Good luck mama. I hope that you can convince her.
    Yikes! And thanks for the link. I have emailed Dr Newman and hope he responds. I might try Dr Hale too. Scary, yes, even if a baby seems OK, I don't see how we can know a drug has no effect. I also posted my question on kellymom, one of the posters said they use it all the time for morning sickness in Belgium, they can get it OTC!

    We have 2 beautiful children: Luana who's 9 y/o, had breastmilk for 2 years and is smart as a whip. Lucas who came out kickin', is 4 y/o and continues to enjoy his milkies.

Prolactin levels are so high when you're pg (to maintain the pregnancy) that not much can get that milk supply up. The signal for your body to start producing milk is a big drop in prolactin after the placenta is delivered, so as long as your prolactin levels are high, it is hard to get milk production up. Of course there are some mothers who are exceptions to this and produce plenty of milk, but I think for most moms, their supply drops dramatically.
    Yeah, this totally makes sense to me. I don't see how we can expect to trick nature into keeping a full milk supply right up to the end, but this is what she is hoping for.
