Support, information, and stories from an Omphalocele mom
I know this is not about the vote, but just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your post on breastfeeding. I went back and read it again yesterday and it made me feel much better. I never realized how hard it would be--just thought it would come so naturally. Glad to know I'm not alone :) Also, did you ever find out what his rash was from? I'm starting to wonder if some of our problems are from yeast since I was on antibiotics for the c-section and am having some of the symptoms. Going to the doc tomorrow so maybe she'll be able to help. Thanks again!
My OB and the pediatrician did not think it was yeast, I was concerned about that too. He had such bad diaper rash because he had a poop in his diaper every single time he ate. He poop was so acidy that no matter how fast I changed his diaper it would burn his bum! Poor guy, when I started adding more formula and rationing the breast milk his amt. of poop decreased and his rash went away. I was not exaggerating when I told you that his rash went away in ONE day when I gave him more formula and less breast milk. It broke my heart to do that and to this day I still get sad when I see people breast feed. I thought it was going to be cake for me too...how wrong I was!Good luck tomorrow!!
