Hi everyone, my name is Jody, I'm expecting a baby boy due on August 24, through adoption. This is the 5th adoption situation we have delt with in the last 2 years, we have even been as close as havng a baby boy with us for a week, befor his mom re-claimed him. The first and last situation I induced lactation, after the re-claim, I swore I would never induce again untill I knew the baby was going to stay for good. The last time I used B.C. pills and Dom. Wow what a ride that was! It worked, pretty fast actualy, but it gave me horrible headaches, and i gained 12 pounds to boot!
I think this time I will just use the Lac-aid supplementor and see how things go. I just cant bring myself to pump and take meds that have such horrible side effects for me. The wounds of loosing "our baby boy" after a week of bonding are still very fresh! I tried pumping the other night and cried like a baby!
I guess what I'm trying to say or ask is.....Has anyone used the lact-aid? had an experiance like mine? WOW, after re-reading my post I feel so silly!
Sorry to POP into your group! I just feel anxious and hope what I have planned will turn out OK!

i have heard that once you have lactated once in your life then you will not need the meds. you just need to pump, to get those hormones and things going again. also just wanted to tell you that your not silly, and i think that it is awesome that you want to breastfeed you baby! you are starting you baby off the best way you can. alot of mothers that actually give birth don't even do this and it is waaaayyy easier for them to. so you go girl!!! please stick with it and good luck, i hope that you will finally be blessed with a baby!

Hey, we have been trying to adopt since 1999 and it is now 2006!!! 25 failures, including one biracial baby girl we had in our home for 3 months!!!
We now have been selected by yet another birth mom and maybe it will actually work this time.
I plan to breast feed... nursed my 28 year old daughter and 26 year old son, best experience i ever had!!!
Hang in there...
