    Hmm...I wasn't thinking that I was really gone for 11 hours, that is a lot. I think he was also going through a growth spurt during the 18 oz day since the day before he was nursing every hour to hour and a half. That is so exhausting!

    I do feel my letdown happen but he seems comfortable with it now (when he was younger he'd come off, cough and I'd spray him) but maybe I can let him off when it happens to see if that improves things.

    And yep, in TN! It's a beautiful state although I'm closer to Knoxville on the other side of the state.

    Dairy seems to be in everything! But if it helps my DS then it's worth it.

    Maybe post a question in the allergy forum. It may or may not be the dairy.

    Unless it was made with dairy-free oil or margarine and dairy-free chocolate, then yes, it almost certainly counts. If you're going to go the dairy elimination route you have to start reading labels pretty religiously. Dairy is in EVERYTHING. Whey or powdered milk in bread. Butter flavoring in margarine. Sour cream flavor powder on chips. Even deli meat can have dairy in it.

    I would say it's either dairy or reflux. Considering how long you are away it really doesn't sound like OS. I had OS and would pump close to 10 oz directly after feeding.

    I had OALD and OS with DD. But I pumped just the perfect amount for her (she took 1oz/hr I was gone). I was double pumping with a PISA 3 times in a 9 hr a day and getting 9-12oz depending on the day. And 3 hr block feeding when we were together. I do not respond to the pump at all. DD was really fussy at one point and right as I was going to try and go DF little white patches turned up on DD's mouth. Thrush, OS and OALD was a pretty hairy combo. But easier to deal with than going DF. Try backing off pumping (pump until you have the "right amount" not until you are down to drops.

    Wondering if you have PPD? Take the screening and see your doctor. You deserve to feel better.

    I'm sorry you are having such a tough time. I know keeping your diet so restricting can be hard (as my DS too has a milk protein allergy). I just want to tell you that you are doing such an awesome job, working, dieting, pumping, and breastfeeding to make sure your baby has the best. Kudos mama! Keep up the good work.
