lol i'm actually really happy i woke up engorged this morning and my breasts were very hard, baby ate and then my breasts were soft so i know he emptied them correctly!!!

what should i do with the galactogogues im taking? i want to wean off them because if i drop them all at once im worried my supply will drop...

i take 3, 3x a day...

haha i am SO happy! i decided to start taking 2 this morning instead of 3, im gonna take 3 for the afternoon and evening still because my supply still needs to build up for those times....  i'm gonna wean off them super slow to make sure i dont have a drop since things are finally going so well :)

This drop one dose per day every few days until you're done with them.
I was SO HAPPY when I saw the title of this post! :-)

Yay!  I've never gotten engorged in the entire 2 years I've been nursing (guess it's good to have massive boobs lol), but I think I'm good to go with my supply!  I haven't taken the dom yet since I was waiting for a check to come, but I really feel like I don't need it now :)  Yay for Dr K!!!!
