Re: Unable to breastfeed due to meds...advice?
A lot of times docs err on the side of caution when it comes to medications and lactation. It's quite possible that they do not know the answer to the question "Is it safe?" or that they gave a "No" answer when it should have been "Not 100%, but if you use it in the following way you'll be okay." You may want to check out Hale's Medications and Mothers' Milk and see if they've given you accurate information.
If you truly can't nurse over the next few days, it seems to me that your best options are:
1. Get out of the house as much as possible. Distraction is your friend!
2. Avoid the situations which your LO associates with nursing- if he usually nurses on the couch, avoid the couch.
3. Get help from friends and family. If you can't nurse the baby down to sleep, maybe Daddy or Grandma can cuddle him to sleep.
