Has anyone taken the pills Domperidone to increase lactation? I've been through surgery and was having a hard time producing milk so I looked up this pill? Any thoughts about this pill? I looked it up and I was getting conflicting results?

Thanks for your comment. Drinking alcohol would work but I'm allergic to alcohol.

I do not know that one, but have heard great things about mothers milk, and fenugreek. Also what worked for me was drinking one guiness beer when i needed a boost of milk. Alcohol in breast milk acts like alcohol in your blood stream and will be gone from the bm in the same length of time as in the blood (about 1 hr per drink). So I would have 1 beer after the kids bed times when i was guaranteed not to need to bf for an hour or more, and by morning my breasts would be engorged. No need to pump and dump.
