    My production is up, getting more & more,

    but we have company for 3 days. Yikes! How to explain that I need to take a little break every 3-4 hours. :-/ wish me luck.

    Is there anything better

    than laying in bed listening to the rain while my husband suckles my breasts? I think not ❤️

    Ugh! I'm so full today!

    Bad day yesterday. Missed 4 pm session cuz we had company, then hubby fell asleep without suckling. Tried to pump at 3 am, but fell asleep. Yikes! I'm aching! Might take 45 min to drain them this morning. :-/

    I've been inducing for about two weeks.

    Hubby is getting a few swallows at each session. Pumping is kinda slow, but I'm making progress.

    Hubby is always so gentle

    when he suckles, but last night in a heated frenzy, he suckled like he was starving & it was so amazing! Production is up to almost an ounce each session.

    Up to an ounce at this morning 's session.

    Got a new premie card for my hospital grade pump. I think it's making a difference.

    This is such a huge commitment.

    I'm happy to do it for my husband & for myself, but it DOES require a lot of time & planning. I will tell you, that I've never been more content. :)

    Question: how many times can I safely skip a

    session without losing volume?

    It's been a few weeks now.

    No major progress. Bought a breast pump yesterday and am starting to pump every 3 hours around the clock as well as hubby suckling morning and night. We're hoping my milk should come in within the next fortnight or so!

    Yesterday was a rough day.

    Had to attend an event 3 hrs away. Didn't want to mess up production, so I pumped in the car on the way up & the way home. It's funny how my breasts know when it's time to be milked. 3 hrs on the dot & I felt it. Took everything I had to stay the duration. As soon as I got in...

    Today I am stopping the Goat's Rue.

    I gave it a week without much increase. I have upped my doseage of domperidone to 80 mg per day. Currently I am producing 5ml per pumping session. I'll check back in a few days & let you know if discontinuing the Goat's Rue has made a difference. Hubby doesn't like for me to...

    Got my first drops of milk Tuesday night

    and I am super excited, I'm not a fan of oatmeal but I think having it for breakfast daily is kinda helping!!! I feel fantastic!!! I thought it would take longer than 1 week to reach this step of re-lactation! Tuesday night I only got a few drops from each one Wed I got a few...

    Recently, in the last two weeks,

    my husband and I have both decided to relactate so that I can nurse him. We haven't started toward any serious relactation but have started suckling every morning and night for around 30 minutes a time. I am already noticing changes in my breasts- fuller, more sensitive, veiny...

    Milk is in. Although supply is low :( But I am

    working on it. I have a manual pump just waiting for the electric one I ordered to arrive... I am able to get milk with hands and hubs with mouth. How come I am only able to get 10-15ml (combined) with manual pump??? Is it that I am not relaxed enough??? It feels like with...

    My hubby decided that he's done.

    Too much milk. I don't understand because he's the one who asked to restart last time. There a very deep emotional connection when you're involved in this. I don't know how to handle this & divorce is not an option. I need advice & not that you'll take over. That's not gonna...

    I'm backing off the domperidone this week.

    Trying to wean off. I'm decreasing by 10 mg per week. Hoping it doesn't completely hinder my progress, but I've gained like 12lbs from that stuff. :-/

    My suckler is on strike.

    Never can seem to make it past a month and a half. I swear. Always something. This time, I have no idea what he's talking about or what his deal is. Oh well...I guess I'll just wait it out.

    I just started with inducing yesterday.

    Miscarried a week ago at 6 weeks but already had the nice swelling breast. My partner loves the idea and besides looking for a breast pump now and lots of constant massage he loves to suckle my breast for hours. I love seeing him get so hard from the thought and can not wait to...
