Before using domperidone

Remember: Before using domperidone, the breastfeeding should be fixed, and as quickly as possible. This means:

  • Getting the best latch possible. This alone may result in the baby getting enough milk.
  • Using compression to continue milk intake by the baby.
  • “Finish” one side before offering the other (see this page for an explanation on how to know the baby is getting milk)
  • Do not limit the baby to one side if the baby is not getting enough. Switch to the other side once the baby is no longer getting milk even with the compression.
  • Switch back and forth, as long as the baby is getting good amounts of milk.
  • See the protocol for increasing breastmilk intake by the baby.
