at this point I honestly do not care about breastfeeding anymore.
I am worried.
the doctors are screwing with my meds and medi-cal is giving me problems trying to find a doc, i just want him to be ok. i dont know where i can get formula that will even be ok for my LO. please help me :(
wasnt able to find any formula i trusted he wouldnt react to, this is my plan for today:
im going to be pumping pretty much all day and imm going to putt a hot compress on my breasts to help my letdown.
whats going on now is the docs raised my thyroid when i was already hyper, told me i was hypo, causing problems, im not going to taake any more thyroid. period. until i talk to a competant doctor, its highly likely i didnt need it to begin with. since they tested my levels when i was pregnant..
No alimentum does not have gluten, my son was allergic to wheat ,rice, soy and eggs, then later developed a milk allergy.
Alimentum is $25/can, (and they are smaller then regular cans, we went through 3 a week) you can call the company and ask for coupons, or ask your pedi for samples.
My son still had skin issues and oozing from his face even on the alimentum, which is why we switched to goat's milk, his skin totally cleared up, although he would have minor constipation, but we were willing to trade open, oozing wounds in front of his ears, for that, any day!
I hope you find something that works for you! (Some insurances will help with the cost of alimentum, mine would not, unless he had a feeding tube)
does it have gluten?
you could try alimentum, but my food allergic guy still reacted to it (even though they said it was impossible) We ended up going the raw goats milk route, with vitamin suppliments
