My daughters pediatrician states that I should only have enough milk "to go in coffee or cereal", not to drink glasses of it.....
Don't I need a ton of calcium? I don't eat enough yogurt and/or cheese, but I can drink milk allllll day.
BUT, I have been told by my midwife, and by my lactation consultant, and by WIC that I should drink lots of milk - That my body needs extra calcium to keep me strong and then have extra for my baby. (I do take a calcium supplement, and my prenatals still)
our ped(iadtrician) has mentioned that it will make her belly upset and make her fussy.
What has everyone else been told about drinking milk while breastfeeding?
How much milk can you get away with?
Am I hurting myself our my daughter by not getting enough calcium?
