If you live in the US and ordered dom from Inhouse, how long did it take to arrive?

I just had my baby and am having the same supply problems as with my first.

I have about 10 days' worth on hand, just wondering if that will be enough to get me through until the order I just placed arrived. I can't remember how long it took last time (3 years ago). I don't want to run out before it gets here.

Sorry, I don't know the answer to your question about how fast the Domperidone will arrive, but congratulations on your new baby!

I noticed she was just born 4 days ago; are you sure your milk has fully come in yet? I've read that even mothers with full supplies often need to work to build a good supply in the first days and weeks.

I also struggled with low supply with my DD, so I know how hard it is! Good luck and I hope your Dom arrives quickly!

We're on day 6 now... she was born at 4 am on Thursday.

My milk seems to be sloooooowly coming in, but by day 4 she had already dropped 12+% of her birth weight and hadn't pooped (or peed much) since day 1, so we have had to give her some EBM from a friend to get through until my supply gets going. Non-stop screaming baby, not so fun.

This morning I seem to have more fullness and more milk, and I do have a rental pump that I'm using as well. But at this point, given my history, I am ok with just starting the dom now and working on increasing supply both ways (pump + dom). Both of the LCs that I am working with seem to think that I'm better off starting the dom very early, since my milk hasn't come rushing in, and we can work on weaning off it later if my milk supply catches up.

But of course, as any mama who has had milk supply issues knows, it's part science and part art to get things going!

Congratulations and good luck with everything! My first order from in house got delayed at customs and took 3 weeks. But my 2nd order took a week. Hopefully yours won't get stuck and it should come fast.
