i am a type 2 diabetic. i was on metformin before pregnancy, but i have been on insulin during pregnancy.
i know in hospital they will be checking for low blood sugar in the baby after it is born. the treatment seems to be either formula or glucose water given by bottle. i am really committed to breastfeeding and im worried about confusing the baby so early on. what are my options? which is better formula or glucose water? i plan to ask the doctor today what the hospital protocol is here. are there any requests i can make before hand to make this better for me, the baby and our bonding/breastfeeding? TIA
