I recently discovered I have ASD, a heart defect that needs to be corrected with open heart surgery. I am fortunate to be able to postpone the surgery until my daughter is older and on solid foods. But I BF all of her siblings into their second year and really do not want to end this special time with her. I know she cannot have mommy milk while I am on meds, but am hoping to restart when I am off the meds. She will be around 6-7 months old when I have the surgery. Will be unable to nurse for 3-6 weeks, depending on how well I heal. Did anyone have an issue with their milk supply? Thank you ladies for your assistance!
