    I agree with this! There are formulas that are really thick and easier for bub to keep down but if bub is putting on weight, no matter how small the amount, I wouldn't start compromising your breastfeeding relationship...especially if the vomiting isn't upsetting bub!

    I would be beyond devastated to even feed bub ebm from a bottle let alone formula.. Some babies need this but I don't think mine does! We have only had two vomits yesterday morning and one smallish one this morning - she has been in the same outfit for almost 24 hours which is a miracle lol! Fingers crossed it stays this way

He said the some of his education was 'well we all know breast is best so let's move onto formula'. So a lot of the medical fraternity are basing their advice on their own opinions. The ABA has spent a lot of money and time into funding and research in the area of breastfeeding. With this knowledge they have produced some great information articles and books around reflux, which I am so grateful for after the crappy and out of date advice I was given with both of my kids surrounding the topic.

    It just makes me so mad and sad that people are given the experience you have Sarelou. So many people lack the knowledge or determination to go against their advice and are left guilt ridden, hurt and confused about the whole scenerio, even years down the track because they weren't able to fully establish and maintain a breastfeeding relationship, based on the opinion of some Doctor/Paed/Pharmacist/Nurse etc etc
    My MIL is so supportive of me breast feeding and has good advice. She is STILL upset and angry about the bad advice she was given, to formula feed DH 30 years ago, which didn't actually solve his reflux.

    I had a ridiculously good milk supply when DS was really little. It didn't settle down until he was 4 months old, and I had been using breast pads 24/7. Before then, my breasts were hard when it had been longer than 4 hours between feeds. Now, I don't need to use breast pads, even overnight when he feeds once in 9 hours.
