We just got the news on Friday that we might be parents in less than 2 weeks!


I had intended to induce lactation using the Newman Goldfarb protocol, but there's no time now!


I started taking Fenugreek, blessed thistle, Mother's milk tea, and other stuff today.  The dom is on it's way.  I started pumping today and I'm already getting pinpint sized drops out of my right breast!


What else can I do?

YAY!  Congratulations!


Have you emailed Lenore (of the Golfarb-Newman protocol)?  She may be able to help you out with some ideas.


Good luck! :)

  Hmm, oatmeal and beer? Make sure you're pumping around the clock. I think it was those night time sessions that stopped me sooner than I thought.

Good luck! So wonderful!
