I am seriously wanting to try and to relactate but I really don't want to wait 3 weeks for it to get here via airmail. The sooner I start, the better off I'll be. Hoping this will help get things on a roll.

Have you tried any of the herbs that can help increase your supply? That may be a good start if you can't get domperidone for a few weeks.

I am going to buy some Fenugreek tomorrow and I have a friend mailing me some Mother's Milk Tea. Are there any others you know of/would recommend?

Thanks for letting me know about the More Milk Plus. I think I am going to order some tonight and try to use it in conjunction with the domperidone. I really hope this works.

How are you all able to get this medicine? I've done my research, but most sites I've been too were confusing and or stating information regarding the FDA.

I think domperidone is prescribed in Canada a lot, but from what I've read, they don't regularly prescribe it in the US. Have you talked to your doctor about getting some? That's your fastest way to get a prescription for it. Be VERY careful about ordering it off of the internet, you never know what you might get and who you are getting it from! Here's a link on prescription medications for increasing your supply:
kellymom.com :: Prescription drugs used for increasing milk supply

And also herbs for increasing milk supply: kellymom.com :: What is a galactagogue? Do I need one?
Fenugreek and blessed thistle are the 2 most common herbs used.

This might be the More Milk Plus, I've heard really good things about it: Breastfeeding: Motherlove Herbal Company

The best thing you can do to relactate or increase your supply is to pump and let your baby nurse though. The herbs or prescriptions should be used as a supplement to help you out, but not as the only thing to get your supply back.

I've used Domperidone and it did help my supply, but it also did a number on my hormones in other ways. That's why I discontinued it.

The next thing I tried was the More Milk Plus (Special Blend because I have PCOS). This worked much better than the Domperidone and didn't screw up my hormones. I would definitely recommend it!
