I'm breastfeeding my son but im going to have surgery this friday.. Due to the medicine I wont be able to use the milk the first 24 hrs after my surgery (according to the dr.) But then I have to go on a liquid diet for a week.. with soft foods like mashed potatoes and yogarts, etc. (I'm getting my wisdom teeth pulled..OUCH! ) I'm scared that not being able to have a healthy diet my body will slowly produce less and less milk.. I know a week isnt a long time but I dont want to sacrifice breastfeeding!!
**NOTE: I will be pumping when I can**
Also my son today kept refusing my breast no matter how hungry he got. He IS teething so maybe that had something to do with it but I dont want him getting used to the bottle while im unable to breastfeed him since i'll be doped up the first 48 hours.
