I'm on day 3. I haven't gotten to get in as many pumping sessions as I would have liked due to a crazy schedule today. I've pumped 4 times today. I have had the engorged tingly sensation roughly 2 hours after pumping each time today. Its such a strange feeling. I'm not producing but it feels just like when I was lactating. I hope that is a good sign. I've had a few people message me asking about my protocol and resources. Currently, I am taking fenugreek, blessed thistle, mothers milk tea and pumping 6 times a day for 10 minutes each. I have found a few resources on inducing lactation but most involve birth control pills or prescription medicines. For now, I'd like to stay away from those because I don't react well to medications. I will still post those once I get a list together though. I haven't found many websites that talk about inducing lactation on breastfeeding sites. The majority of the websites that I am finding are adult fetish websites. Not exactly what I had in mind, but they do have some interesting tips. Hopefully, we can change that and get more non sexual information out there soon. I do have an audience when I pump now. My 4 year has asked a lot of questions and my 2.5 year old just comes to watch and tell me that I have silly boobies. Thanks kiddo.
