Milk production may be significantly lower with this protocol than that achieved with the Regular Protocol but there is more to breastfeeding than breastmilk. Yasmin or Microgestin is taken for days non-stop, only active pills, no sugar pills, together with the domperidone 20 mg 4 times per day. If significant breast changes occur within 30 days, the birth control pill is stopped while maintaining the domperidone, and the pumping schedule begins. Significant breast changes include an increase in breast size 1 cup and breasts that feel full, heavy and painful. Note: stopping the protocol before these breast changes occur is not recommended. The mother can use the feeding tube device filled with either breastmilk or artificial infant milk to breastfeed her baby while she is going through the protocol.

Lactating Not Pregnant: Symptoms and Treatment
Lactation describes the secretion of milk from the mammary glands and the period of time that a mother lactates to feed her young. The process can occur with all post- pregnancy female mammals , although it predates mammals. Newborn infants often produce some milk from their own breast tissue, known colloquially as witch's milk. In most species, milk comes out of the mother's nipples ; however, the monotremes , egg-laying mammals, lack nipples and release milk through ducts in the abdomen. In only one species of mammal, the Dayak fruit bat from Southeast Asia , is milk production a normal male function. Galactopoiesis is the maintenance of milk production.
How to induce lactation
So if you are planning to adopt a baby or a toddler, know that it is possible to work towards this goal. We know that some women will produce some amount of milk. Others will produce a lot more and some will produce a full supply. A really encouraging recent study talks about a lady who adopted a baby, and managed to produce so much milk that she became a donor! What we do know is that the amount of milk that you produce can be related to a number of different factors.
Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that approximately 75 percent of new mothers start off breastfeeding their babies, but many stop either partially or completely within the first few months. One of the most common reasons for this is worry about insufficient milk production. For many women, your milk supply is just fine. However, if you do need to increase your breast milk production, there are ways to do it. Read on to learn how to increase your breast milk production using several evidence-based methods and some practices mothers have sworn by for centuries.
