I have started taking Domperidone. Let’s add that to the list of ‘things’ I am taking each day:
6 x Domperidone 10mg
1x Burgerstein Schwangerschaft und Stillzeit (pregnancy and breastfeeding multivitamin)
3 x Saint John’s Wort 300mg
2 x Magnesiocard Magnesium 10
2 x 7tabs of Schüsslersalz Magnesium Phosphoricum (Mg for the vasoconstriction I get in my nipples)
3 x 3tabs Burgesrtein Lezithin (Lecithin in English? I think? For the milk blister that has been there for weeks)
3 x 10 Arnica globuli (heal that bloody blister, damnit!)
2 x Weleda Stilltee (breastfeeding tea)
A big bowl of porridge (not sure if that counts, but I use it as such!), always with raspberries 🙂
Then there’s the topical stuff – Weleda Heilsalbe (healing ointment), Heilwolle (healing wool), Medela PurLan lanolin, and the silver cups. And today I’m getting myself some quark to pop on that blister and see if that helps in some way… *

* Please please please please please don’t provide me with a list of other things I could be taking or trying in order to increase my milk. The list of things that I have tried in the past is probably in excess of fifty, and the thought of having to defend this decision is emotionally draining. Just trust that I have exhausted all avenues.
(Edit: I later increased my dosage dramatically, read about it here.)
