I need some advise about what should I do.
My DD has a reflux and food allergy to something I eat (I started dairy, soy, egg, gluten free diet 3 days ago so hopefully we will resolve the problem).
Because of her reflux and the allergy DD started crying at the breast several weeks ago (I have a post about that) - initially she would do it few times a day and after distracting her I would manage to bring her back to the breast. However over the past week it has gotten worse - she cries constantly during the day when I try to breastfeed her - the moment I take her in my arms and lay her down to feed her face turns red and she starts screaming - she does not even try to latch on So I end up giving her bottle with ebm. The only time she feeds ok is at night. According to my ped dd associates breastfeeding with being in pain that's why she refuses to take the breast.
Should I continue giving her bottles during the day or should I be persistent and keep offering her the breast only??
I am affraid she would hate breastfeeding so much if I continue trying to nurse her she would stop take the breast at all. On the other hand I am also affraid she would prefer the bottle over the breast(
Also I am going back to work in 2 weeks so she would have to get bottles of ebm anyways (I am not sure if it is too early for sippy cup).
Any advise what should I do will be very appreciated!!!
Thanks so much!!!
