I made a previous post about how my daughter was at the hospital for 2 days 104 degree fever, lethargic....
Well they said that she has extremely low anemia count. She explained to her father and residents when they were diagnoising? and discharging her that this is what happens when a baby is only breast fed!
Now after all my hours of falling asleep at my pump at 3am if I were there you can believe the words that would have come out of my mouth require a gallon of soap.
So the blood specialist suggested that we give the baby a half diet of formula and a half diet of breast milk, iron drops and increase in "adult food". DD is now 12 and a half months.
She had her blood test yesterday and the doctor said that she looked good and that she would call my DD's doctor and tell her when it is fine for the baby to have cows milk and only 3 times a day! Then said that it was the breast milk that was causing the anemia and that at night she should only get water or juice. Too much milk is the PROBLEM.
Now unfortunately I could not be at the appointment to ask my many questions because I have a job and her father does not. So now I am completely upset and lost.
Why is it everytime I speak to a medical specialist, breastmilk is not the answer??????
