I kind of have a big decision to make about this. I have interstitial cystitis, it's a condition that causes pain, spasms and sometimes small ulcers to my bladder. I take a medication for this during flair ups(which happen about once a month and last a few days) that has never been tested in nursing or pregnancy and part of it is turned into formaldehyde by the kidneys. I also am sometimes on a narcotic pain killer for severe pain from the IC and I know what that did to my son last time(he was just too sleepy to eat).
I was hoping to combo feed, something like 75% bottle 25% breast since my husband is the stay at home parent right now anyway. My doctor said it was up to me and what I'm comfortable with. I guess if I do combo feed what I feel most comfortable with is just to bottle feed and pump and dump when I take my pills.
Does it sound like an ok plan to try even if it only lasts a few months?
