OK so my baby is almost 2 weeks, I wasn't going to breastfeed but I am still leaking and leaning towards breastfeeding because she is having soooo many problems with formula......
I do NOT want to breastfeed I want to pump.. would I be able to 2 weeks after birth? they still hurt and still have milk in them I just don't know how much.....
If it is possible what can and can't I do while breastfeeding.... I love pop and drink a lot of it, will it hurt the baby??? I am finally off the pain killers so that won't be a problem but I do take motrin when i have a headach or something, is that alright??? can I eat anything I want???
sorry but I really have no Idea on what to do here!!! please help me!!!!!!!!!

Like everyone else said, you can eat and drink what you want, take motrin etc. If you want to give your baby breastmilk you need to rent a hosptial grade pump (like the Medela Symphony) and start pumping. Pump every 2 hours during the day and once at night MINIMUM. The more you pump, the more milk you will make. Even if you only get out a little bit the first day, keep trying and it should increase. The more milk you take out, the more milk your body will make.
Watch and follow the steps in this vidoe Maximizing milk production when pumping
