My DS is 5.5months fully breastfed and occasional fed expressed bm if I have gone out.
I have been advised by my Dr's to wean my ds to formula as there is possibility that I will will be having chemo or radiation in the next few weeks that is not going to be suitable for breastfeeding. That's the worse case scenario but definitely a possibility.
If not that scenario then I will be having surgery and require hospital time away from my baby, unsure on what medications i may be prescribed for this.
With everything that's going on I don't think I'm going to have the time to continue to pump for him to have enough expressed bm for while I'm gone. He will not drink it if it had been frozen.
This could all happen as soon as 2 weeks away and I want to start weaning to be prepared if I have to start treatment straight away. Or if I get called in to appointments with not much notice.
How do I this? I don't want to upset my baby and cause him distress but unfortunately I don't have a choice.
My DH has tried unsuccessfully with formula over the last few days, DS just won't drink it.
