Breastfeeding for baby expected through surrogacy

I am expecting our first child via surrogate and I am trying to induce lactation so I can breastfeed my baby. I'm wondering if anyone has done this and what you did to start your milk production? I have been referred to the AskLenore.com website by the local lactation consultant but she didn't have any other advice to offer me other than following their protocols. I'm in the US and am not able to get the drug they use in all of their protocols and am wondering what others did/were told to do. Any advice would be helpful! Thanks!

Re: Breastfeeding for baby expected through surrogacy

  • I remember you from TTCAL. Congrats!!!

    I think someone on the adoption board successfully induced lactation. I believe she took Domperidone (which I took for supply issues) among other things, but I don't know details.

    Good luck!

  • I've heard domperidone can induce lactation. I used it to boost supply. You can buy it on line. Congrats and good luck!
