    Default It's WORKING!!!!

    I can't thank you ladies enough for supporting me. All the ideas, and herbs, and pumping....and pumping for endless weeks....pumping.

    I finally caved and educated myself as best I could about Dom and ordered some. After just 24hrs from the first dose....I woke up with full breasts. I almost cried. I managed to pump nearly 5oz collectively throughout the day, by pumping after each feed which is a far cry from my 2oz just days earlier. And and...I had just started AF. I'd noticed a teeeny bit of difference when I'd started the calcium/mag combo so hopefully if I stay on top of that I can avoid such a huge drop next time.

    I got 6oz in a 12hr period at work and two days later (after the dom) I got 10oz! Then yesterday I was off and didn't have to supplement my little guy with ANY bottles!!! WOOO HOOO!

    I'm still not getting enough at work but my next few days off I'm going to continue pumping after feeds to store up extra for my work days.

    I was ready to throw in the towel. I felt so bad because my LO wasn't interested in any cereal or foods and really loves to nurse.

    I'm trying to continue to be positive and plan to be on dom untill mr little guy is done with mommy. Which is fine with me! Even if I have to continue to do a bit of supplementing here and there....I don't have to quit! Here's praying it continues to work!

    Where did you order the DOM from? I'm experiencing low milk supply, and it's been chronic low milk supply right around my son's birthday each month.
