    I am reading the back of the fenugreek bottle…they are safe for nursing moms right? It says to consult your physician before taking if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. H also, how many and how often do I take them? Thry are 610mg pills and the bottle says one or two a day but I thought I was supposed to take more than that.

    Lawsons- People are so quick to judge. You and your partner if anything have a deeper connection because its not easy going the route you guys did and your AMAZING for it…Your one of the strongest women I know you want so much for Lawson and your giving it to her by PUMPING to give her your milk! Eff off to the slimy snake that cant even say who she really is!!!

    Thats how I found out second time, woke up and was sick. First time I was trying, started throwing up the day after I found out. Must admit second time was worse throwing up with a 10 month old around was hard.

    He only spends a few hours in his crib but since he usually sleeps with me he is actually not very mobile at night. Chris was all over the place and we stopped using the angel care around 10months because of it. I’ve only had one false alarm with Alex. I feel better with it on, even with false alarms.

    I’m gonna brag for a minute..i ate the oatmeal for the first time at 10 am today and i just pumped an extra ounce this time with no problem..and it seems my letdown came faster…don’t know if its due to the oatmeal or the increase in fenugreek pills..I added 3 more pills a day to my intake…now i’m at 12 a day…still not really smelling like maple syrup. But i’m happy i got that extra ounce..gives me hope!!

    jenniewren – If you have her with you then why pump? When it’s time to eat you just do a potty and gas break. HAHA! It means more stops when you have a child but a 14 hour trip is long for anyone. You’ll need the stops. We did one of those last summer. What we did was leave at 8pm and drive through the night. Then, Chris slept almost the entire trip. We drove from Seattle to Vacaville (close to San Fran).

    aussieqldmum – Our hospital doesn’t use formula unless they have to. They don’t take formula in. They’d rather get donated milk. As for shelters, unless I wanted to drive into Seattle to drop it off it’s not going to happen. Plus, I don’t support milk-substitutes. If they want to spend money sending it to my trash can then that’s fine.

    Domperidone Info: It is FDA approved in many different countries (just not the USA), and is regarded as the safest drug for lactation, and is approved the American Academy of Pediatrics. Because the FDA does not regulate compounding pharmacies, you can get it there via a prescription by your doctor. The side effect of the medication is lactation, but it is actually to help with the intestines, so you may notice an extra bowel movement during the day. I spoke w/ the pharmacist and she indicated that it does not pass into the breast milk, which is why it is considered safer than Reglan, just not worth the millions of dollars to go through the FDA approval process. Typical prescription is 125 pills that you take 4 times a day (every 6 hrs) with one refill. Once you are into your second month, you slowly wean yourself from the medication by going to 3 x day, then 2 x day, then 1x day. You shouldn’t need it after that so long as you keep up a strong, frequent nursing/pumping relationship. BTW, because it is not an FDA approved medication, insurance will not cover the costs, so it runs you about $100 per fill/refill. That being said, all other methods should be tried before going to a prescription, work closely with a lactation consultant to make sure you’ve exhausted all other methods. Low supply is actually pretty rare!

    Okay! Thanks sooo much ladies. I was worried I was overfeeding him. He will sometimes feed for 10 mins on each breast and sometimes for almost and hour. A couple of times fell asleep and didn’t burp him-his poor tummy got so sore and bloated. I’ll definately have him upright for the 20 mins.
