Inducing Lactation

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

We just got the news on Friday that we might be parents in less than 2 weeks!

 

I had intended to induce lactation using the Newman Goldfarb protocol, but there's no time now!

 

I started taking Fenugreek, blessed thistle, Mother's milk tea, and other stuff today.  The dom is on it's way.  I started pumping today and I'm already getting pinpint sized drops out of my right breast!

 

What else can I do?

YAY!  Congratulations!

 

Have you emailed Lenore (of the Golfarb-Newman protocol)?  She may be able to help you out with some ideas.  http://www.asklenore.info/

 

Good luck! :)

Awesome!

  Hmm, oatmeal and beer? Make sure you're pumping around the clock. I think it was those night time sessions that stopped me sooner than I thought.

Good luck! So wonderful!
