Ok well here I am with my 2 week old cute little angel. I have noticed one thing........ He is sooooooooooooooooo good. I was the breastfeeding pusher in all cases and even want to be a lactation consultant one day but this time I didnt want to breastfeed because of the meds I was on. I just had my heart surgery last friday when he was only days old and am not on meds except for some antibiotics for this nasty cough. Well he is 2 weeks old and I have been told that I can pump a full day and that will up my milk and I can breastfeed. I now am not sure what to do since he is the calmest baby I have ever had. I am not saying he would be different if he was breastfed but could it be? He eats every 3 hours and sleeps and never cries unless he is hungry .
I also feel I need to recooperate and breastfeeding seems to take it all out of me . I tend to not eat enough and have anemia and so on. What would you guys do. I want to BF because nothing is sweeter but I have to think about this one.
