I am 33 and have a 14 yr old son (natural birth) who I BF for only a couple months (something I regret now). Recently I found out I can no longer have a child of my own and I am in the process of looking to adopt and just starting research now. I do not have the ability to do the protocol which includes the BCP for 6 months due to health risks.
I all the research I have done I dont see many stories on how long I can expect it to take to re lactate with massage and pumping. I do have a full time job so every two hours is not possible. I do it approx 3-4 times a day and my breasts have changed after just a week and I have a constant feeling in them that things are changing. (tingling or heightend awareness)
Can anyone comment on the following:
How long will it take (in your experience) to produce any milk at all.
Has anyone achieved this with only stimulation and pumping?
Do you have any tips for full time working mothers trying to re lactate?
Are there any books on this?
What are some helpful resources?
Where can I get the dom drug?
Any help is so desired.
