"There are very few pregnant people who make no milk at all. Suckling tends to promote breast milk, and if the baby is having trouble latching on, pumping can help promote more breast milk coming in. You want to make sure you’re adequately hydrated; people who are dehydrated may not make too much milk." Minkin also says that some people who adopt want to breastfeed, so they take a medication called Reglan. It’s actually a drug for nausea, but it can raise prolactin levels so women who have never been pregnant can breastfeed. "I don’t think it’s universally successful, but I’ve had a couple of patients who have adopted and were able to successfully breastfeed after taking it."
