(i didn't have the supply for his demand) he's only four months now and i have been considering this. he's eating solids and whatnot and is on isomil but i would really love to successfully BF. if not DS then the baby we are TTC.

Yes, Domperidone has to be prescribed by a doctor...and to complicate things even more, it is illegal in the US. Check this out: http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/...ead.php?t=8889

There are some links in that thread about relactating...it is difficult but doable and most would say definitely worth the effort! The best advice I've read/heard about reintroducing the breast is to not set your expectations too high and not let yourself get frustrated. I do not have personal experience with relactating, but I did exclusively pump/bottlefeed for the first 7 weeks and had to reintroduce the breast after that so I can sympathize somewhat. I can also give lots of advice about getting a bottle baby to take the breast!!

Good luck!!
