Hi there
I've been on Eglonyl as I have had low milk supply, my baby wasn't gaining weight so I have been substituting with expressed breastmilk and Dr put me on meds. On Sunday my breastmilk dried up as I got mastits for the 5th time - it always impacts my breast milk supply in both breasts. Unfortunately I haven't been able to get it back and I've been pumping every 3 hours after I feed her - I'm feeding her on the breast and then supplementing with a bottle. So I have 3 questions: I want to take Motillium as well - does anyone know if it's safe to take both Eglonyl and Motillium? Secondly is there anymore I can do for low milk supply other than pumping and Fenugreek which I'm on as well plus letting her nurse as often as possible. Lastly has this happened to anyone else where overnight your milk dries up and what did you do? I have read all the posts on "do you really have low milk supply". And I do - poor weight gain, and only 1 dirty diaper a day. I'm desperate to breastfeed but don't know what else to do. My LO is 11 weeks old

Sorry I should have mentioned that I have been pumping between feelings but I haven't found that it helps, as i don't produce enough milk by the next feed. When I don't pump between feelings my LO will drink off my breast for a bit at the next feed, but when I pump she won't, she fusses and cries because there is no milk. So I have found that pumping hasn't helped me to increase my milk supply. Also by motillium I mean domperidone
