How to Decide Which Protocol is Right for the Mother
Depending on when the mother expects her baby to arrive she’ll have to think like this
…she’ll need to pump for at least a month.
The mother will need to be off the birth control pill when she starts pumping. She will need to be on the birth control pill-domperidone combination for at least 30 days non-stop. The longer the mother can be on the combination the better.
So if the mother has three months…she’ll be on the combination for 2 months straight.
If she has 2 months…she’ll be on the combination for at least 1 month straight.
After the mother is off the birth control pill and still on the domperidone, she’ll begin to pump. The mother will need to use a double electric breast pump such as either the Medela Pump n Style or Medela Lactina Select (see the section on breast pumps). And then she’ll need to take herbs…fenugreek and blessed thistle.
