Okay, so my LO is allergic to cow's milk and tomatoes (we had to see the doctor every day for 2 weeks to be sure of this diagnosis) so I have eliminated those from my diet and have continued to nurse her. Well, the doctor is now concerned that my LO might not be getting the iron she needs since my levels are dropping and has asked me to try her on a special formula made for babies with cow's milk allergies. Well, the baby did good with the first bottle, but she has steadily increased her refusal of the formula. It's gotten so bad that when I leave her at daycare she'll go the entire time (which can be up to 4 hours) without taking the bottle. I'm at my wits end, and so is the daycare. I've tried pumping, but I can only produce enough to satisfy her, even when I took suppliments to help increase my supply and pumped every hour.
If I can't get her to take the formula (which I tasted to see why she didn't want it and it tasted bitter, I tried adding some syrup, no good, added a little sugar, no good, it was still bitter) and I can't pump enough to give the daycare a bottle for her, and I can't quit school unless I have to money to pay my loans back (which I don't) then what can I do?? Is there any other formula's out there? I've never even heard of this brand of formula before. I don't know what to do!
