Kate is doing well with pumping and getting into a routine that I think she feels comfortable with. She pumps every two hours during the day and once in the middle of the night around 3am or so. She is now taking a higher dose of the Domeridone along with Blessed Thistle and Fenugreek three times a day. I’m getting her some Red Raspberry Leaf extract and Gaia Lactation Tea with our next paycheck to up the supply.
So that’s the back story as of now.
She is consulting with a lactation consultant through our insurance and on a Facebook site for woman on Domperidone. She is following the Newman Goldfarb protocol strictly as well, such a by the book chica.
One of her breasts is the main producer and the other is barely producing anything. We know this is fairly normal but would like info on how to help the other breast produce more.
What advice could you give her?
What other supplements or vitamins could help?
Any specific advice on pumping with a new supply?
When inducing, how long before her full supply comes in do you think?
If you’ve had “issues” with supply what helped you the most and what didn’t?
Also, I’m starting to massage my breasts in hopes it helps my milk come in faster as well. I’m going to start taking the supplements once the babies get here and I’ll start pumping at 36 weeks too. Any advice for me?
