<p>Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has any resources they can share with me on this topic.  Experience would be great too! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I got the go ahead from our social worker to pursue foster/adoption nursing, which really surprised me but I'm also encouraged.  There is a lot that might not work out and so many variables, but the benefits are so huge that it's worth a try.  If anything I can give pumped milk in a bottle.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm beginning the re-lactation processes with the Newman-Goldfarb protocals and I'm wondering if anyone has experience with this?  It will take a while for my domperidon to arrive so should I begin taking my birth control pills in the mean time, or is it best to wait and start them both at the same time?  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>We are less than a month away from being done with our homestudy and to begin the child matching process, yeah!!! </p>

<p>Check out <a href="http://www.asklenore.com" target="_blank">www.asklenore.com</a> or possibly it is now <a href="http://www.asklenore.info" target="_blank">www.asklenore.info</a>. I met a woman IRL who was pumping 26 ounces a day before her baby arrived. I've chatted with other women at asklenore who have had great success as well.</p>

<p>I was already nursing my bioson and maintaining my milk supply for our adopted baby. Domoperidone made a big difference for me. So did Motherlove's More Milk Special Blend.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Rather than give the baby a bottle, just nurse with a lactaid. <a href="http://www.lact-aid.com/" target="_blank">http://www.lact-aid.com/</a> Even if you only make a little milk, that's better than nothing. I donated to a woman who could not make milk (she did NOT do the newman protocol, she just tried pumping once or twice a day--definitely not how to do it.) She nursed two adopted children using a lactaid and donor milk. We met via <a href="http://www.milkshare.com" target="_blank">www.milkshare.com</a>. There's a new donor milk site on facebook called Eats on Feets. </p>

<p>My adopted daughter is 28 months and still nursing. I use a supplementor at nap and bedtime and just nurse the rest of the time. (Given her age I supplement with cow's milk.) It is a wonderful relationship to have with her.</p>
