when to start inducing lactation
My hubby and I are starting the adoption process in a few weeks. I want to breastfeed. If i had bio kids i would have breastfed them so for me breastfeeding is my choice. I want to pump and use Mothers Milk Tea. I already have a medela in style advanced pump and i have found out that WIC lends hospital grade breastpumps to nonWIC mothers who choose to breastfeed. I have spoken to the lady and she told me to call her when im ready to sign the pump out.
My question is…when should i start pumping and taking the tea? Keep in mind this protocol may take longer to induce lactation and i want to be producing some milk and possibly have some stored to use in a SNS. The agency average wait time is 3-6 months.
