Please don't hate...I'm just trying to protect my son.
I work in aerospace, I'm an airline mechanic and I work with really nasty chemicals. I take as many precautions as possible but I'm still worried. My son is 8 months old, for the last 6 months I was allowed to work away from the airplane and all the chemicals. But my light duty is over and now I have to go back to my regular work. I'm not comfortable breastfeeding if it could possibly expose him to these chemicals.
so how do I go about this...right now he's getting some formula and some breastmilk. Is there a pill to dry up milk? Do I just stop cold turkey? I'm worried about the pain and getting mastitis.
Has anyone been in this position before? has anyone worked with hazardous chemicals...did you still breastfeed?
