Hello...

My name is Beth and I am new to the board. My husband and I are pursuing adoption and awaiting the birth of a baby girl due at the end of May. We are incredibly excited and just spent several days with the potential birth mother. She is amazing and is committed to making this adoption plan work. Fingers crossed...

I am exploring induced lactation as I am considering nursing the baby. I am over 35, never given birth and have had a bad reaction
to Yasmin in the past. I am wondering if anyone could share their experiences...opinions...feedback regarding successful protocols? I did read some of the postings on this site but I'd like to hear some personal experiences too.

Thanks in advance smile
Beth

I did the protocol with the Yasmin. I was under 35 the first time and over 35 the second. I had no issues except a little weight gain. I think you can use other bcp's (ortho-novum I think), or they are recommending a different protocol for those over 35 to limit the risk from blood clots. From what I have seen, those that do the bcp's seem to be more successful, but you should talk to your doctor to see what they say for you.

The domperidone is the most important part, but the bcp's help to prep the breasts, especially for those that have never nursed before. Whatever you decide, I would start soon, especially if you have a match. The domperidone takes a while to get if you order it online.

Good luck to you!
Jennifer

Hello, this is my second time trying to induce milk firstime I did the accelerated protocol with Yasmine and domperidon it worked great I was under 35, now this would my second time. This time we are trying to adopt 2 kids at a time I appreciate any advice from the senior members, I was planning to do the same process as before as I know it worked, but any recommendations are helpful.
Thank you so much for providing this service.

Hi Deeba,

Congrats on the adoption! My advice would be to start the protocol now and stay on it for as long as possible to give yourself the best chance to produce enough milk for both children. The accelerated protocol may not be enough to prepare your body.

Good luck and keep us updated!

There was a recent discussion on the prescription topic as well. You do not need one if you order from http://www.inhousepharmacy.vu/ (.vu not .biz), however you cannot pay with a credit card, you can only use E-check.

Hi Claudia,

We ended up getting one baby only and due to some circumstances I didn't start the protocol, our baby is about 9 months and now I am starting on accelerated protocol.
I just wanted to double check to make sure I am doing this right, I should take bcp and domperidone 20mg 4 times a day until my breasts feel sore then stop bcp and continue domeridone..?

I did this before but for some reason I remember I took bcp for 30 days then when I felt my breasts sore I stopped bcp and started domeridone.

Really appreciate your help,
Deeba

Hi Deeba,

Congratulations on your baby! That's very exciting. I would stay on the bcps and dom for at least 30 days (to give your body the best chance at making the amount of milk you want) and then stop taking the bcps and continue with the dom. Good luck and keep us posted!
