My friend has a one month old DD. She tried BFing for a week and a half when she found out her DD had a bowel problem and trouble gaining weight. Her Pedi told her to give baby karo syrup and formula feed also to give her rice cereal too. So she has been doing that for the past 3 1/2 weeks.
PLUS my friend "said" her milk hadnt come in after 9 days. So she gave up on breastfeeding due to baby problems, depression, coliky baby & her milk "not" coming in.
**Im not sure if her milk ACTUALLY DIDNT come in or if she just gave up too soon** personally my milk didnt come in for 8 days. so.
Well now that her DD is doing WAY better and gaining weight she wants to try to get her back to breast.
Im not 100% sure but i DOUBT she has been pumping this whole time, so im not sure if that plays a factor in getting baby back to breast?
I told her I would find information about this for her since she is so busy with her DD.
Please help if you have any information for us. =) Thanks!!
