Ok guys I am desperate literally desperate for help. Ive talked to a lactation consultant, my doctor, WIC, and numerous other people. NO ONE is helping and I am at my witts end. I have been exclusively breastfeeding my son since he was born. I had plenty of milk up until about a month ago. My milk has dropped Id say like 75%. The doctor wont give me anything to increase lactation and I have been taking fenugreek 3x a day trying to get my supply back up. Im drinking plenty of water and I am punping/nursing every 2 hours for a minimum of 20 minutes.

I have heard that reglan helps get your supply back up. Has anyone tried using it? If so does it work?

Also I know that you cant buy it in the United States anymore but Ive heard that domperidone works wonders! And that it used to be perscribed to nursing mothers all the time w/o any problems. I have read a lot of medical reports about it and talked to a few doctors who have perscribed it to patients before it was recalled. They all said the same thing that it works wonders and that 66% of mothers had an increase in their milk supply and had no side effects. I am seriously considering buying it from Canada. Has anyone ever tried it?

I just need some suggestions and help because I DO NOT want to give my little guy formula.

With Healthy nursing tea noticed results pretty fast. I have been breastfeeding for 4 months now. I'm back at work and i needed to up my milk supply for the sitter. This has been wonderful.

Sounds like you're doing all the right things, except that stress will make your supply low. My milk got low too. Have you had him to your nipple? That increases your supply too. I had the same problems that you're having at 1 month. I just did everything you're doing and my supply went up.
