Relactation?

Postby Cindy » Thu Oct 03, 2013 5:38 pm

Any and all advice available. I`m in the process of doing this. I just finally was able to rent a good hospital grade pump. Its day 5 and I`m up to 2 ounces. I still need to really hand express all the pumpings what a pita. I started off with no milk! I`m on domperidone as I`m canadian

All I can advise is the more you pump or stimulate your breast the more you should produce. I went through a low milk production phase a couple of months ago where I went from pumping about 5-6 oz each time I pumped at worked to only about 1-2oz. Freaked me out. I just pumped/nursed a little more and I started taking Fenugreek and drank mothers milk tea. That did the trick for me. Just keep at it. Your in my prayers. :-) Good luck and God Bless!!
