An off lj friend of the family delivered a micro preemie (24 weeks, 1 lb and change) yesterday and is having trouble getting lactation started. She has a hospital grade pump that she is using every 90 minutes, and my MIL is heading over to the hospital to bring her some fenugreek tablets and I've suggested asking for reglan.
What else can she do? She hasn't produced so much as a drop yet.
ETA: My friend is working with lactation consultants at the hospital, and I will be cutting and pasting the replies to send to my MIL, who is visiting back and forth while the rest of Audra's family travels to her and the baby. Obvs, the relatives weren't quite ready to make the trip.
