How much Domperidone do you think I should order (I'm going to go for the co. in New Zealand, listed in this thread ?
How much fenugreek? I'm guessing 6-12 capsules a day... do you think 2 weeks worth would be a nice start?
A LC has suggested Goat's Rue as well, to serve as a galactagogue, but I'm not so sure about the reported side effects. It seems to be one herb that you have to be very careful with.
here is a galactogogue link:

Do you think I should chance it, or go ahead and order the items?
It's wonderful that you're so determined to breastfeed. My supply has been a little higher than the first time. Hope you'll have better luck, too.

Good luck, hope you don't have any problems!
If you really think you're going to have supply issues, maybe order the minimum package of domperidone - at 4 tablets a day the 100 package is 25 days' worth, for nineteen dollars with shipping. If you don't need it, you're not out that much money (and you could probably sell it on the trading post or something) and if you do need it then you'll have enough lead time to order some more.
Most doctors in the US don't know anything about domperidone because it's not available here and would likely not know about drug interactions, etc. If you're concerned about it, I would contact Dr. Jack Newman's breastfeeding clinic in Toronto; they have a lot of experience with domperidone there. I know I've posted the number on the boards here somewhere, you may want to do a search.
