i just had a baby A WEEK AN 1 DAY AS OF TODAY AN I'M BREAST FEEDIN HER AN I'M ALSO PUMPING WOULD THIS MEDACATION MAKE YOU NOT PRODUCE ANY BREAST MILK OR COULD I BE ONE OF THOSE FEMALE'S WHERE I CAN ONLY GET SO MUCH SO THAT PRETTY MUCH MEANS THAT I CAN NOT BREAST FEED NOR PUMP PLEASE HELP ME I'M TRYIN TO FIND THIS AWNSER I DID HOWEVER LOOK UP SOME INFO ON THE CUMPUTER ABOUT IT BUT IT JUST STATES IT IS A CLASS C AN CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT A CLASS IS SUPPOSE TO MEAN??
Class c means the benefit to the mother should outweigh the risks to the baby. It is excreted into the milk, but there is no evidence its harmful or not. There is nothing about it that should be drying you up. Are you drinking enough fluids? Keep pumping because the stimulation causes more milk to be excreted.
Percocet (oxycodone and acetaminophen) will NOT cause your milk to stop producing. The best way to stimulate breast milk is to let your baby eat often and pump when she isnt eating (if you are away from her and your breasts become full) If you are home with her and nursing full time, you really shouldnt need to pump. As long as the baby seems satisfied, she is getting enough milk. Breast fed babies will eat more often than bottle fed babies simply because the breast milk is easier to digest. Most breast babies will feed every 2 hours or so-sometimes more often, sometimes less often but usually no more than 3 hours between feedings. This is normal, it doesnt mean she is not getting enough. If she doesnt fully empty the breast, you can pump and store the milk for use later like having Dad feed when you are away. Try to stay relaxed and not to be stressed or anxious as this can cause your milk to not flow as well. It does take a bit of time for the milk to come in fully and the more the baby feeds, the more milk you will produce. Let her feed as often as she will. Like I said before, if she is satisfied and is urinating and having bowel movements, she is getting enough. It is best, in these early days, to keep her on the breast as much as possible to help stimulate the breasts to produce and to develop good sucking muscles in your baby's jaw. The bottle is easier for them to suck from and gives instant gratification and some babies get to prefer the bottle for this reason, if bottled breast milk (or glucose water) is offered, so it is best, especially in these first several weeks, to try to keep her on the breast ONLY so they dont get lazy from being offered the bottle. One of the worst things I did with my second baby is let them keep him in the nursery overnight and they gave him glucose water. He got used to that instant gratification and when I put him to the breast he got frustrated and would get so mad he would stop sucking about the same time as my milk came down so I had a fussy baby AND breasts full of milk which is very uncomfortable. It took a couple of weeks to right that wrong and get him back on the breast. It can make some moms nervous when they breast feed because you cant see how much they are getting but take your cues from the baby. Remember, as I said, that breast babies feed more often than bottle fed babies. Commercial formula is not as easily digested and forms a curd in their bellies which keeps them full a little longer but breast milk digests easily and so the baby will feed about every two hours. Look to be sure she is wetting her diapers and having a BM most every feeding. If she is and she sleeps for the hour or two hours between feedings she is getting enough. I'm sure you are doing fine! I succesfully fed both of mine and no one in my family were breast moms-only bottle moms so I had to learn it all myself. Just try to stay relaxed. It can take a bit of learning for the both of you sometimes. Also watch what you eat. There is no such thing as a baby who is allergic to breast milk. They MAY be allergic to something the MOM eats however so try not to eat anything with strong flavors like onions, hot or spicy foods can flavor the milk and also cause the babies tummy to get upset because this flavor can secrete in your milk so try to eat blander foods and be sure that you are eating healthy and drink lots of water to keep yourself well hydrated. You should drink 1-2 glasses of water while your baby feeds. If you have questions, feel free to private message me and I will try to help you. Breast feeding is one of the best things you can do for your baby and it carries rewards for you both that bottle feeding just doesnt do so hang in there! Again, I'm sure you are doing just fine!
