I am pumping now, every 2 - 3 hours or 8 x's a day. I started Yesterday morning and only have drops that come sister is bringing me some donperidone tomorrow (she is flying in from outside the states) - is this going to work? Also, I have tried and tried to offer DD since last week - my breast and she is not having it - she cries and cries until she gets a bottle. I even tried with an SNS and she is just not having the breast. Am I wasting my time? Has anyone been able to relactate after 3 months? I am so desperate for her not to be on soy that one of my friends has offered to give me some of her expressed milk until mine comes in - but is it even a possibility????? Any comments or sharing of experiences or any advise as to how to get DD on the breast would be greatly appreciated.....


I just wanted to see if there was any update on how things are going for you? I hope it's working well! I'm very interested to know!

I've never even been pregnant and was able to induce lactation and get a full supply. Domperidone is wonderful! My daughter refused the breast for a long time. It is helpful to have a decent supply before you try to put them to the breast. It also helps to have them watch other children breastfeed.

I relactated when my dd was 7-8 months old after EBF for the first 4 months. It was a long, difficult journey but well worth it. You can PM me for additional info if you want. GL and keep pumping.
