I had plans to d/c the Dom gradually, and had started to (I think I was down to about 100mg/day) but then my GP discovered a lump in my breast and ordered me to stop it immediately.
You know what? I didn't notice any difference at all in my supply. I think my supply had reached its peak long before that and the Dom wasn't doing much any more. I've heard that Dom is great for getting your supply up to speed, but that it often doesn't affect it much after that. I think Cindy's experience is likely more common. But that's how it worked for me. I've been off Dom since DD was about ten months or so (I was planning to take two months to lower the Dom, but then had the abrupt order to stop it) and she still is a nursing fiend. I did give her cow's milk from a year or so as well, but she loves to nurse.
ETA: The breast lump was benign, but my doc wanted to make sure that the Dom wasn't contributing to it and because there is so little research about Dom, we decided to cover our bases and stop it.

Also - if I wean off Dom now, are 2 months enough for it to be completely off my system and I can start TTCing? I have decided to give my body two months off Dom before TTCing.
