I have a close friend who I met in lamaze class and we had our sons a day apart. We have both been BFing fulltime. Last night I spoke with her and she said she had some bad news. She's got some killer sinus allergies and they are so bad that she has to go on a round of steriod treatments for a month to help her out. This means that she cannot BF her son. She says that she is hoping to be able to pick it back up after she is done with her treatments. Do you gals have any tips for how she can do this successfully?? We both don't know much about formula and I would like to have the best possible info for her if she needs my help. She attends LLL meeting every now and again (better than me-I'm unfortunately just too busy or tired to do so) so I'm sure with that support she will be able to do it if she is diligent (which she is!). But I know it's going to be hard for her so I just wanna have some good info for her so she knows she has my support as well. TIA!
