Hard to believe the same baby who was refusing to nurse on Monday was refusing the bottle and nursing for longer periods yesterday. She only took the bottle as a last resort, after nursing thoroughly on both sides, twice. She hasn't done that in weeks, she was always too frustrated with the breast after the let-down ended.
I've upped my dosage of domperidone to 50 mg, 4 times a day. I mean, can it really hurt? If it doesn't significantly increase my supply, I'll drop back down to 40 mg, 4 times a day.
I want to get some goat's rue again. I haven't used it since struggling to breastfeed Lulu, 2 years ago, and I wasn't a huge fan because it made my blood sugar drop and I ate all the time. But the domperidone has already made me gain weight, so what the heck? Might as well try and grow some more breast tissue.
