Long story short (nak) my week old baby had to deal with extreme gassiness (refusal to feed) in his 5th week and an UTI in his 6th and 7th week (needing 10 day course of abx due to which again he nursed very poorly).
So in 8 week life he nursed poorly 5,6,7 weeks. So my milk supply which started as an oversupply and very very robust during his 3rd and 4th week dwindled heavily. During his 5th week... I caved and started 30 mg of Dom... (I was already taking every other galac under the sun. goat's rue, blessed thistle, fenugreek, shatavari, dil seeds, oatmeal, water etc.)
So anyway..after just a day lots of milk. Goes on for 2 days. And a crash! Almost feels like 50% milk on day 3 (which is less than what happened befpore dom. At least then it felt lik I was dwindling down to 70-80%. Dont ask me how.. a mom knows)
Anyway.. so upped dom to 40mg/day. 2 days of great robust supply... 3rd day CRASH!
Is going on like this . Now am on the CRASH after 80mg/day of DOM and may go up to 90mg today....but this cannot be sustained.
What's going on? Feels like a caffeine high and a crash (which is worse than normal buzz)
OR like an alcohol buzz... and a hangover.
What's going on and how can the prolactin high and the milkiness be sustained?
PLEASE help..someone!!! My LO REFUSES ALL supplementation... lactaid. bottle,syringe etc and he nurses ONLY from one breast bcos other is too large and doesnt letdown well and doesnt pump either....
