I was not getting any more the 3 oz all together when I would pump and I knew my son was using more than that because he would still cry unless we gave him another 2-3 oz of formula. I hate giving him formula but I wasn't producing enough for him. My ob gave me Reglan and now every time I nurse I get letdown (didnt used to) and I can get about 6 oz all together. I am mainly just concerned with side effects and if its passed through my milk, if its safe for my preemie?

"Healthy Nursing Tea" has really helped to boost my supply! I was a little worried about the taste at first, and when I had my first cup I thought I was going to gag drinking it. But now that I drink it daily I actually enjoy it and think it tastes great. I can now produce 4 to 5 oz milk per pumping session.

It has worked wonders for me. Im not sure why she chose that instead. I have the generic version and ive seen great improvements. My only issue is remembering to take it 4 times a day. I only take it in the morning and at night. I know its working cause I pump and I get much more. I get letdown every time I nurse and my son is pooping more regularly. He used to poop daily then it was only after Id give him prune juice. Now it everyday sometimes twice a day.

I used it. My dr put me on a dose lower than what was rocommened for milk supply so I didn't really see any difference in my milk supply. My daughter is 8 weeks old and I'm still having problems to this day. I have no idea what to do.

Reglan is considered an L2, which is pretty safe. According to Medications and Mothers' Milk, by Dr. Thomas Hale, there have been no adverse effects in babies, even preemies. There can be some not so pleasant side effects for mom though (intestinal cramping, diareah) Any idea why your HCP chose this ofer the more commonly used Domperidone (which is usually better tolerated by moms and ok for babes too.)
