OK, so I thought we were doing OK -- making enough to feed the baby (about 27 oz/day) at 14 weeks PP. Started with 10x (15 min.) for 3.5 weeks (using a ton of supply boosters -- fenugreek, blessed thistle, oatmeal), then went to 8x (20 min.) until 12 weeks PP, then 7x (25 min.) for about 5 days, then 6x (28-30 min.). At 6x, I was getting 4 to 5.5 oz per session (I know, it sounds pathetic, but it was enough). Well, last night at 2 a.m. all of a sudden I can barely squeeze out 3 oz in 30 minutes! This also happened at 6 a.m. Waiting to see what happens at 10 (but the outlook does not seem good).
I've heard of people experiencing drops around 4.5 months, but we're only at 3.5. Is that what it is? As far as I can tell, all the mechanical stuff is the same -- the pump (PISA) sounded a little funky a few days ago like it had hiccups and Medela is sending a replacement motor, just in case. But lately it's sounded OK.
Thinking about domperidone because I hear it's effective for bringing back former levels....but I'm also having recurrent rectal bleeding and am afraid that the gastroenterologist will not like me taking a non-FDA-approved gastrointestinal drug for this....
Has anyone experienced anything like this?
