I have been taking Goat's Rue for a few months. I am about to run out and am wondering whether I should reorder or not. Our baby is due 8/1/07 (only 29 more days!!!) I have enough goat's rue for a few more days but that's it. Should I reorder or just keep taking the Blessed Thistle, Fenugreek, Milk Thistle, and dom?
TIA,
Kim

Don't take Milk Thistle.. that will not help your milk supply that is a liver detoxifier. The way I would judge if the Goats Rue is working for you or not is to stop taking it for 3 days. If your supply drops then I would order it. But if it does not I would not order it.

Yes, I am pumping. I started back in April but am still only getting .5 or .6 ml's daily. I threw yhe milk thistle out - so no more for me.
Thanks,
Kim

How often are you pumping and what pump are you using? How much dom are you taking?

Hi Lalle,
I pump with a PISA every 2 - 3 hours from 7:30 am - 1:00 am and I usually get up once in the night to hand express. And I'm taking dom 40 mg 4 X per day. So a total of 160 mg daily.
thanks, Kim

It sounds like you are doing great. Keep it up. You have a lact-aid or other SNS right?

I had the deluxe and added another top piece I also used their bags and the bottle liner bags you can buy at the store. I made myself a pouch. That worked great for me even when we were nursing every feed with the lactaid. I got bags ready and stored them in tupperware cups in the fridge then I would just pop on the top and it was ready to go. I rinsed the top out after every feed so they were ready to be reused.

HI laurie... my hubby and I found out today that we are adopting a baby that is being born today or tonight as I write this.. I am going to order the lact-aid and have it shipped tomorrow moring. do you know of anywhere in Jacksonville, Fla. that I can purchase a Lact-aid when I go there when the baby is born? I have prepared for 3 months to do this , and I have taken Domperidone for 3 months, and the BC pill for 3 months also. do I stop the BC pill in the am.. and keep on with the Domperidone? And then start the Blessed Thistle, and the fenugreek tomorrow too? I have not been able to get a response from Leonore.. but, I think that she is not going to be in her office till tomorrow morning.. I think I will hear from her then. thanks for any help.. Lisa C
