Induced Lactation - Adoptive Mother
max-Are you taking progesterone as part of your regimen? I was thinking about this because when a woman give birth it is the delivery of the placenta that triggers milk production. The placenta makes progesterone, and the big sudden drop tells the body to make milk. Perhaps when you stop taking progesterone, and start nursing, your supply will increase. Just a thought. I'm sure your LC would know more. Good luck!
I already have a SNS which I got from the LC. It's a little tube that leads to the bottle and can be put right at the nipple. I plan to use this. The nice thing about buying it from the LC office is that it was super cheap, a couple of bucks.
I visited my Lactation Consultant today and I feel like a rock star. Two weeks of being on my medications and almost three weeks of pumping, I'm getting in a good 2ml a day or more. This is great given my short time span of preparation. Hopefully when the baby comes along it will trigger more milk.
