Adoptive Breastfeeding with no prior nursing
Hello! I am new to this group and just starting the protocol to induce lactation. I have started birth control and am waiting for my domperidone to come in. When I ordered it, the pharmacy was adament about the max dose being 30 mg a day…..my lactation consultant said not to worry but my doctor who is very supportive was a little concerned and wanted to keep me on the 30 mg dose to see how it went. I have no biological kids and no fertility issues, but therefore have never nursed. I have only talked with people who have previously nursed, who have tried adoptive breastfeeding. Has anyone who has not previously nursed been successful? You read a lot about what to take when but does anyone have some practical advice on what this looks like on a day to day basis? I have been blessed to find peope supportive but not experienced….any thoughts are appreciated!!
