Why? I don't drink milk....ever. Do you have viactiv over there? They taste like chocolate(or other things) if you need calcium.

Re: kind of upset..

Sorry, but I'm glad you're upset about this. You had me scared the for a sec.

Now, why do you have to drink milk? I don't drink milk either and it makes me sick. Tell her it makes you sick if you drink it!

Also, why do you have to stop bf? Do you have complications f/ previous pregnancies? Then I'd understand. If not, I don't see why.

Sorry for the bad day you had.

Pam

Re: kind of upset..

because finland only has sun 3-4 months out of the entire year. so that is where vit. D comes from. so i have to get it from milk. say the midwife..

i know they have some gross milk shakes. like ensure chocolate flavor but those taste milky to me and i cant drink them..

blahahhahahah and i ate my last jolly rancher that Melissa sent . thats even worse

Umm makes little sense to me. Has she read LLL new book by Hillary Floweres? I see NO reason why you can't tandem unless your milk decides to dry up on its own. She sounds misinformed.... I too would find a new MW

Re: kind of upset..

i don't want to upset anyone here but it makes sense to me to stop nursing while pregnant....your body has to keep up with itself which requires extra things during pregnancy, then you add nursing to that as well. you really are taking a toll on your body, not to mention that either the nursing or the baby is going to suffer fewer nutrients somewhere and you have no way of telling whether that be with the baby or the nursing. so to me it makes perfect sense. but that's just my opinion, like i said not trying to tick anyone off. i just don't feel the mw if trying to be mean or that she's misinformed, she's just trying to give her patient her best information that's all.
