    Not at all, this is what I'm doing

    Domperidone x3 times a day
    Fenugreek capsules
    Lactation cookies
    Smoothies with Brewers yeast and flaxseed
    Constant feeding during the when she wakes (usually every 1-2 hours) when she gets frustrated because I don't have enough milk I give her a formula top up (usually only 50-80mls)

    At night I feed every time she wakes and then give her about 100mls formula top up.
    I usually try and pump a few times a day (if I have any spare time with all the feeding) but I don't actually get anything out.


    My supply is low because I had a traumatic emergency c-section 2.5 weeks ago and I had a large PPH. I produced no breast milk for the first week but it's very slowly picking up now. My little girl has no problem latching but I know my supply isn't great because she just gets so frustrated and is always hungry and rooting around even after being on both breasts.

    I have just upped it today to 2 tabs x3 per day until I can get another script because I don't want to run out. Do you think that will still help?

    Yep. When my supply tanked due to stress - I was prescribed that. Within 3 days I was exploding milk.

    Oh that's awesome! Okay maybe I'll give 3 a go for a few days and get to the GP for a new script.

    I'm sure you are already doing this, drink loads of water and eat well. Good on you for trying everything. There is a GP who specialises in breastfeeding that you might find helpful but she only works certain days. Marnie Rowan.

    Just booked in for next week. Thank you. It's $230 for a consult which seems a lot if all we get is an extra script. Hopefully we can take away some more info and advice.

    About the same price. I'll get almost half back from Medicare as well so it's not quite as bad.
