    Default Wow... One day of Dom... Def increase already!!

    I took 40 mg yesterday (2 doses... 10 mg the first time and 30 the second... I missed the 3rd). I noticed that I did feel a bit fuller this morning but I also didn't pump last night (I slept through 3 alarms!) so I figured that's why. I just pumped/manually expressed 1/4 oz! I actually sprayed while pumping, without having to apply pressure to the ducts. Normally, I have to apply pressure to the milk ducts to get the sprays out.

    Yeha! Today I'm taking the proper dosing (30mg 3 times a day) and planning to pump every 2-4 hours today since DH is home and every hour tonight until I go to bed. AND I plan to wake up every 2-4 hours after midnight. I gotta get my butt in gear with this! DS is nearing 6 months old and I'd like him to be on only breastmilk by the new year!

    I just wanted to say that I think the domperidone works! I'm only one day in so we'll see how it works over the next week with some good pumping but that is a good increase. I was only pumping under 1/8 oz in the morning and nothing else during the day except a few drops.

    Yahoo! I hope this keeps up! DS eats 4-6 oz every 3-4 hours (except at night) so I need to get up to being able to pump 36-40 oz a day at some point. Though I'm all for half formula and half breastmilk but I would love to get him on only breastmilk.

    Thanks for letting me ramble ladies!!

    I got about the same amount the 2nd pumping as I did the first one. Just under 1/4 this time! Def increase happening here! Awesome awesome! I can't wait to see what a full daily dose of 90mg does for me! Woohoo! And LOTS of pumping tonight!

    Each pill is 10mg. The recommended dosing is between 30-90mg per day. I was told not to take more than 90mg per day, but I know some people do and they seem to be fine! I'm currently taking 1 10mg tablet 3 times a day and it works fine for me.

    Alekxa, it depends. Some mothers can wean off of it after 1 month, others have to continually take it to keep supply up...

    I got in 3 pumpings today... Yup, I've slacked a bit! I plan to cluster pump from 10:30 until midnight and then pump once after midnight before heading to bed... I should be able to get in a good amount of pumpings.

    On the upside, I am getting a bit under 1/4 each time and have totaled about 1/2 oz today in my 3 pumpings. That's great considering yesterday I got 1/8 oz in the morning and then NOTHIGN the rest of the day. I think the Dom is really helping!

    I have an odd question for you. Do you feel hungrier taking the Dom or notice that you are eating more than usual? I was just curious since I've heard that since it was developed to help empty the stomach faster, some people end up eating more overall. Just curious!

    P-T-M

    To be honest, I'm hungrier pumping all the time as it is. I eat several small meals throughout the day, usually every 2-3 hours just like DS! I don't really notice a difference but then again, I eat a ton anyway!
