I am a mother breastfeeding for 10 months already and I have a tremendous drop in supply for the past week. I have tried taking extra water, supplements, milk and all cannot help. Can doctoroncall prescribe domperidone for me online?? I do not want to resolve to formula milk

Greetings. Thank you for your questions.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your symptoms. Unfortunately, this platform is only to discuss the health problems experienced by patients. If you are intended to but medication, please click this link (DoctorOnCallEPharma) to get connected with our pharmacy. Medication that contains domperidone did need a prescription. Our doctor will contact you before the purchase been made.

For your information, there are many causes of low milk production. One of the most common reason is simply because the baby is not latching correctly. The production of milk is very much dependent on the removal of milk when your child is breastfeeding. In other words, the more milk you remove, the more you produce. If you aren’t sure about your technique you can ask nurses, your doctor, or even on the internet.

Other causes that can reduce milk production would be medication (eg: combined contraceptive pills, certain traditional herbs), waiting too long to start breastfeeding, not breastfeeding often enough and many more.

For now, what I can suggest you to do is:

  • Breast-feed as soon as possible

  • Breast-feed often

  • Make sure your baby is latched on and positioned well. Also, look for signs that your baby is swallowing.

  • Offer both breasts at each feeding. Occasionally, it is fine to nurse on only one breast. But don’t do this often because your milk supply will decrease. You might want to pump the other breast to relieve pressure and protect your milk supply until your baby begins taking more at each feeding.

  • Don’t skip breastfeeding sessions- Pump your breasts each time you miss a breastfeeding session to help protect your milk supply.

  • Hold off on the pacifier as long as you can- this can also avoid deformity of teeth that usually associated with the child that is using a pacifier

  • Use medications with caution

  • Avoid alcohol and nicotine

The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions. In order for you to know in detail about your problem and received appropriate treatment, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor.
