Re: Crying while BFing:(

I'm right there with ya. DS had dairy issues, so we are going to be dairy free again starting tomorrow.

I know I have overactive letdown, but I just feel like there's more to it than fixing that (I block feed, take her off with letdown/when she chokes....and it's not getting better).

When you cut out dairy, it takes about 2 weeks to be out of your system, and can take an additional 2 weeks to get out of baby's system. Some people only have to take out obvious dairy (cheese, ice cream, milk, sour cream, etc) and that helps. You could try that first. Some people need to take out all dairy (it's hidden in a lot of things!).

Good luck! Whether you cut out dairy or not, I hope Olivia feels better soon!
