well just dandy, this has me freaked out. but what can i do if it's true? my babies need to eat, i need to make about 8oz more milk a day i think, so...
i googled "domperidone side effects weight gain" and i am not finding anything immediately - weight gain is in reference to baby only, on the first page of hits. if it were a bigger problem it seems there'd be more hits about weight gain for mom on the first page right???
i wonder... some women do hold on to 10 pounds of fat while nursing. others lose weight. i wonder if the weight gain is not because of the dom but because you go from a sub-par nursing state to a good nursing state and your body type is such that you hold on to fat while nursing?
could also be that since dom effects dopamine it does make you eat more but the effect is subtle and you don't even know it?
i have been on it a few weeks - well a month actually - can't tell if i gained weight. i don't weight myself much, who needs that kind of pressure LOL
but man... i got so skinny nursing my son. i'd hoped for the same with twins, but faster. so far it isn't happening but i am not exercising and my diet is kind of crappy - i am trying to work on that part to improve my milk supply but obviously with supply issues i am not going to try a weight loss diet. i'm eating coconut oil left and right, heh.
i HOPE the dom doesn't cause the weight gain but if it does, like i said, what can you do? stop it and have to supplement more? quit nursing altogether and feed just formula? the stress of preparing and washing all those damn bottles would probably make me put on pounds just the same.
i stress eat like no one's business...
