I have mastitis again, and had to go to the hospital for iv antibiotics today and again tomorrow, and cannot continue to breastfeed safely for us both. I would have weaned him slowly, but now have no choice but a cold turkey no more breatfeeding approach. My little guy is almost one and can start whole milk, but refuses it entirely. He won't take goats milk or formula either. The doctor said to make sure he gets 16 oz of milk a day, and I can barely get more than a few sips into him. Anyone have any suggestions?
