So..... We found out that Sophia has been so gassy and fussy cause she is lactose intolerant. She has been switch to soy formula and has been so much happier and calmer. I'm sad cause I wanted to breast feed her a lot longer, but obviously what is better for her is what's best.
Question is.... Since I won't be breast feeding any longer, how do I dry up my milk supply?????
A BIG thank you to *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy!
if your doctor doesnt give you any meds i would say you have to do it the hard way. let it dry up on its own sorry she is having trouble with milk. maybe she will out grow it. dd has galactosemia so she cant have milk so i know its not fun to have one person in the family that cant have milk
Oh I'm just now seeing this post...don't feel bad about not being able to BF...u have her a great start. At least now u know the cause of her fussiness n it will improve.
As for drying up, basically the less u release the less you produce. It will hurt for awhile just avoid hot water showers on ur breast n maybe if u wear a constricting bra,I think I read that might help. U may just want to call ur dr to see if there is anything that u can take to help as it may be easier n less painful
