i know how u feel about the guilt part, Nathaniels got Reflux and weve had a rollercoaster with it and been very painful tried all diff medications and stuff we introduced a formula at night to see if he settled with it and he was brilliant.. so did that for a few weeks then the reflux flared up and i had to make the hard decision of giving up breastfeeding and put him on a anti reflux formula and he is ALOT better and settles and sleeps so easily like he was before the reflux happened. At the end of the day you gotta do whats best for you and your baby so what if breast is best... in an ideal world but lets face it its not! Its taken me a while to come to terms with it, but if they are happy thats the main thing.
oh no. poor lil guy!! how did u know he had reflux? that must of been hard but its good hes more settled now.
my midwife called tonight to arrange a time to come visit us. as shes been busy with births last week and i told her i was expressing the milk instead and she said hell forget how to breast feed and made me feel guilty about it again.. i dont think she meant to.
i know its better for us to do it this way as hes def more settled.
i hope ur bubs is doing better now uve got the formula sussed.
