Hi all,

My name is Stacy and my husband and I are adopting domestically. We have been matched with a birthmom and she is due mid-August. I'm wondering if anyone here has any info on relactation and nursing adopted infants?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts!

CONGRATS! I remember someone mentioning that recently. I can't remember who, though. Maybe they'll respond.

Hi! Congratulations!!! I'm so happy for you! Yes, it is possible! There are ways to stimulate your milk production - I didn't know that until afterwards or I would have given it a try - I enjoyed it very, very much with Connor.

Here are several links I found along the way - Hope this helps! Good luck and keep us posted!

I am currently on a protocol to be able to breastfeed my baby that is going to be born via surrogacy. I am following the asklenore.com protocol (BCP and Domperidone started asap, thru the 7th month of pregnancy and then I drop the BCP add the herbs blessed thistle and fenugreek and begin pumping), Lenore can design you a separate protocol though since you don't have as much time. She's great!
