My DD had really bad reflux as a newborn and I had great difficulty breast feeding ( already feeling like a failure ) my DD threw up breast milk as soon as she finished eating, got to the point where my husband would sit there with a towel and wait for it! So we moved onto formula as well as expressed breast milk, my MHCN told me to try giving DD the milk cold as it would soothe her tummy and eliminate bacteria, so we did and she stopped vomiting and was finally getting the breast milk down, I thought YAY we are getting somewhere only to have my mother say to me in front of a full house of visitors( my friends) " good mothers, teach their babies how to breast feed, a good mother would never give their baby a bottle and never ever cold! Good mothers know how to look after a baby" word for word I will never ever forget it!!! My own mother suffice to say she doesn't spend too much time with us!!
