Here's the deal...My son is currently 7.5 months old and will be 10 days shy of 9 months old when I have surgery.
I am having my tonsils out and my uvula made smaller. My Dr. said that I will be on codeine which I can't take while nursing. This is fine, I can do without pain meds or ask for percocet, however, I know that I won't be able to eat for a few days and it will be liquids only so I'm afraid that I am going to dry up.
My son has had formula from the beginning due to jaundice an then since I am a FTM I didn't know how often I should pump, etc and I had no stash when I came back to work and couldn't pump enough for him while at work.
My dilemma is do I wean him now or do I just wait and see what happens? I really would like to continue nursing, however, I'm afraid that I will be too tired or in more pain than I think or will dry up and will have to do it abruptly and do not want to do that to him?
