Thats what I heard as well so I pump every day and still at night time for him.. Yes he chokes, gags, spits up, refuses to eat sometimes and has stopped breathing.. It has been a few weeks since he has had an episode of stopping breathing though. The only thing I was told don't drink caffine and avoid spicey food other then that they told me it wouldn't affect his reflux. I hope that she has gained some weight and that you can get your pump in soon! She is fine on the breast it wont make reflux worse or better I just had to pump because he woudln't relatch after suplimenting while waiting for my milk to come in.. Once you get your pump in and when after some of the feedings you could always pump and freeze to save later in case she does end up needing cereal later on you will have it to mix.. Also after every feeding hold her upright for half an hour and I also bought the rock in play sleeper since it has a slight elavation to help as well. So far adding the new meds and cereal is working wonders for my son so far.. He goes next week for his weight check and I'm so nervous! He was a chunker at birth and isn't anymore he has dropped down a lot and fast down the charts. Also burp frequently this may help as well. Good job on breastfeeding
I know i've had some try and talk me into formula and I would get so down and every time I would talk to the medical profesional about it they tell me absultulty not don't quit breastmilk is so much better for him.. So i've been pumping for 4 months now!
