I am EBF my 5 week old and this Saturday I have to take him to get an echocardiogram. I tried taking him on this past Monday. I did not have a paci with me since it was an unexpected test that needed to be done. I pumped into a bottle and gave it to him but still that didn't calm him down. I BF him in-between tests and my poor LO would not calm down. I know this test is not easy to do on a 5 week old.
The nurse was annoyed with me that I did not have supplement feeding handy and I told her I am EBF. She told me to figure it out by Saturday since the test needs to be done within the week. I of course am stressed out because of my son's possible cardiac issues and when I tried to BF him at the office I was tense and hence my LO was out of sorts...anyone have advice for me to "prep" for this test? I am not willing to supplement feed him for this test.
