Hi Katina
You might be able to just take fenugreek vs the domperidone. I actually think fenugreek might kick in quicker vs the dom. It takes about 48 hrs for me to see an increase from fenugreek. I was hit hard around 9-10 mo by multiple cases of mastitis and my supply dipped. If it is that low I would take 12 fenugreek a day, 4 pills 3x a day with food or around food (can cause a blood sugar low in some people otherwise). Also, pump as much as you can! even if it is after zach is in bed.

have you tried pumping or stimulating letdown BEFORE he nurses?? That can help interest the reluctant nurser.

Also, oatmeal every am really helps me. Just keep offering whenever you can and he will come back to it


Re the solids, I don't know what to tell you. My dd is 13 mo and a bit of a reluctant eater, but I started solids VERY slowly b/c I didn't want her to prefer them over me. If my dd was prefering food over me at that age I would definitely have cut back on the solids a bit.

fenugreek is TOTALLY safe!! I just suggested it since I have read that dom is considered a "bigger gun" in terms of milk production than the fenugreek. But whatever works!

Glad that you had some success overnight. lol, I was working towards reducing night nursing until julia got sick and went on strike. then I was glad to nurse her at night!

when she went on strike I just pumped to relieve myself and keep up suppy and didn't offer ebm in a sippy to her.

oh, sometimes breast compressions help me whne she is mad and waiting for a letdown
