Inducing Lactation

Jaci is in the process of inducing lactation using the Newman Goldfarb protocol. When you have two babies and two moms, what’s better than two sets of boobs to feed them with?

Our protocol: Jaci started birth control after my transfer back in September, and has taken only active pills since then. In early January, she added in Domperidone (20mg 4x/Day). On March 24, we tried hand expression, and were able to get a few mL. For the next 5 days, she remained on birth control and used the hand pump, then the Spectra S2 double electric pump. She stopped the birth control on March 29, and started pumping 5x/day (about every 3 hours) on Saturday, March 30. Her total daily output went from 5mL on the first day with 5 pumps to 28 mL on the 3rd day, to 42mL on the 4th day, to 67mL on the 5th day. At the end of day 11, we have 167mL total.

Pumping Schedule: Once a day on days 1-6, then 5x/day (approximately every 3 hours) starting on Day 7, and the first day without birth control.
