I wasn't suggesting anything to radical.
    I never said it was the best option and there are almost definitely formulas out there he is not allergic to (since I'm a ffing mom to an allergic toddler). I just merely mentioned the babysitters b/c I know some people who don't live by casinos don't know they're an option and some people who've never been to Vegas don't know there's much more to do than gamble and there's family things to do. I would call your friends and see what they say. There's no point IMO going at all w/ your baby if your friends are going to hate that and it's just going to make everyone miserable. I know as a mom it's hard to spend time w/ my own family when I'm having to watch my kids and it just makes me frustrated more often than not and not relaxed at all. I hope you find something that works for you and it's a nice trip for everyone!

    I'm shocked at the suggestion that putting a child at risk is ok for some fun in Vegas!!! I realize that this may or may not be the intent of the OP. Only the OP knows the situation they are in and what their true intentions are! I would again encourage the OP either stay with her baby or bring LO along! It seems the best option for baby that clearly would get sick if formula is used!

    Are YOU kidding me? You know what, you are right...it's absolutely my intent to harm my precious child

    Maybe some of you should get off your pedestal and think before you actually post.

    Thank you Jolie for all the helpfull links, I will be checking them out shortly.

    I have upped my fenugreek intake and have been pumping like a wildwoman. Even if I get 1/2 of the bottom of the bottle covered..I save it. So it's all adding up.

    I have 4 bottles saved now and it makes me feel so much better that something is finally happening.

    I just wanted some info if anyone else issues with formula and not being able to pump due to their lo nursing all day. I'm ok now.

    I just found out yesterday he's allergic to milk and possibly soy proteins from the dr. So that makes sense as to why he can't take them.

    I feel confident in pumping the last few days, it seems it's been all I've done since Saturday and it really seems to have helped. The methods one person told me along with the right dosage of fenugreek.

    thanks to all who offered support and encouragement and ideas
