Mollysmom, thank you for your Response. I also feel that Menopause protocol Does not get the same results as the regular protocol. However I have decreased my domperidone. I have gone down to 120 mg instead of 160mg. Domperidone works by suppressing dopamine and suppressing dopamine can cause depression and fatigue. Of which I was severely feeling. With my new schedule with the new baby and stressing out about milk production I needed to back up. So I am going to hang in the here and give it much longer.
Jennifer, Thank you for all your comments helping me. I do not see much breastmilk coming through with poops. Sometimes I pump before a feed just to see how much I'm getting. Still not much more then 2 ml each side. I do realize the baby is getting much more than I can pump but what double? 4ml?

Just a quick up date ...
It has been a blissful and very busy six months!!
I have kept up my nursing and pumping. I do produce only about 15 oz of breast milk a day but I love the incredible bonding moments of our nursing sessions.
I only take 60 mg of Domperidone because of the fatigue side effect it has on me. I take Fenugreek and blessed thistle. Here again I take less then recommended. 2 of each 3 times a day.
I feel any amount of breast milk I can provide my child ... is a blessing!!

15 oz a day is awesome. Last time you posted you thought you were only making 4 ml each time. That is amazing! How old is the baby now?
