I'm feeling a bit conflicted about the whole affair after speaking to my GP, the pharmacist, the ABA and the hospital's drug information helpline, but the bottom line is this: I've got to take some medication (just a one-off dose) that won't leave my system for 72hrs and I won't be able to breastfeed, so I'm going to have to give my 15wk-old DS formula. [NB: I won't be able to express enough to cover three days, either.]
I'm researching other threads here on BubHub as to which formula to buy (it's SO confusing!) and boning up on how to sterilise bottles and breast pumps etc. I've currently also got the flu, which doesn't help, but I think that I'll try to express as much BM as possible before I start the meds (maybe in a few days' time) so that I can at least give DS a bit more protection against the bugs going around our household.
I'm also dreading the engorgement that'll come from not BFing, even if I pump n' dump.
Just wondering if anyone else has been in the situation before.
