So I started back on the pill and was told that there was a SMALL chance it could lower my breast milk amount. Typically, I end up being a statistic and it lowers my breast milk amount. I'm probably producing about 75% of what I used to, anyway - by dinner time my boobs are completely soft and I barely have any milk in them - and then at bed time they are solid again. So I decided that I would supplement with Formula for dinner. I started with Enfamil A+ and it made my LO VERY constipated - to the point that he cried for two days straight and was VERY irritated and in pain. I stopped the formula for about 2 weeks and dipped into my frozen milk supply that I had from before I started the BCP again. Recently I just started Enfamil Gentle Ease in hopes that it would be better for my LO's belly - IT TASTES DISGUSTING. He won't take it. He cries and actually gags the whole time I try to feed it to him. It's SO sad.
I even tasted all three myself, side by side - Breast Milk is so sweet and like normal milk, Enfamil A+ is sweet but not as sweet as real milk and Gentle Ease actually tastes like chemicals..UGH!
Does anyone have suggestions?! Either on how to help with the constipation, or how to help with the disgusting taste of the Gentle Ease? I'm not sure what my best bet is and I don't want to go spend all that $$ on a bunch of different formulas.
