Baby needs milk in Raleigh

Post by Mamabear123 on Tue Apr 16, 2013 1:52 am

I am searching for safe milk for my 8 month old son. He had severe feeding issues and reflux (reflux meds and all) soon after birth. We saw a dysphasia consultant for a couple of months who recommended I solely pump and feed. He was aspirating when he nursed from me so she thought it was better to feed through the bottle which could control flow better. I then realized that he was severely dairy intolerant. I could have nothing with dairy or it really upset his tummy. Once I figured out the milk problem, he had completely lost the ability to nurse from me. I pumped exclusively for a while longer and he had my breastmilk until he was about 5 1/2 months. At this point my milk was dwindling so we supplemented with a hypoallergenic formula. Unfortunately he did not tolerate this well for long and at about 6 months I was all out of milk and we started him on soy. I am so concerned about the hormonal effects of soy and do not like that he's been on this for 2 months. I would LOVE to give him breastmilk again since he cannot tolerate any formulas but soy. I would so appreciate any milk from someone who is dairy free. He's had a cold for over 2 weeks now and I can't help but think BM would help his body heal. He's such a sweetheart and I just want him to feel better.

Much love and many thanks!
