how long to pump and dump?

well I wont dump it...I'll donate it. Here's the deal

we discovered that DD2 is sensitive to dairy and chocolate when she was 6 wks old. I have since removed such things from my diet and she is doing sooo much better. I should add we can tell instantly if I've had amounts of either. Stuffy nose, screaming baby, nasty looking diapers...yadda yadda. Mine and DH's anniversary is coming up and my mom always babysits so we have the afternoon to spend at our favorite fondue resturant. 2 of the 4 course are cheese and chocolate. I fully intend to enjoy this once a year dinner and have both. I plan to pump and donate my milk and give DD2 bottles from the freezer stash. I just dont know how long I will have to give her bottles from that stash for the chocolate and cheese to work its way out of my system or be in small enough amounts she's not miserable. Thoughts mamas?

My dr told me it can take 2+ weeks to fully get out of your system, but I'm not sure how true that is.

Re: how long to pump and dump?

It can take up to 21 days to fully get out of your system, just depends on how severe her allergy is. My DS is allergic to dairy, I've tried reintroducing twice, and it usually takes 3 days for many of his reactions to clear up. But, each time I've reintroduced an excema patch appears (once on the lower back, once on his booty), and it's been 3 weeks since i tried dairy and then stopped it again and I can still slightly feel where the excema was. However, cheese is towards the bottom of the totem pole so to speak so it may not take as long to get out of your system. HTH

Re: how long to pump and dump?

I would go maybe 3 or 4 days and then try one at every other feeding. I can totally understand you wanting to indulge but that means you also cannot bf your baby for that amount of time. If that is something you are fine with then go for it and enjoy. As long as you are together for your anniversary then it shouldn't matter where you are. You can always go when lo is older!

If you aren't sure then I wouldn't do it. It's not being selfish to want to do something like eat chocolate (yum) but you chose to do the best thing possible for your babies and that sometimes means delaying some good stuff! We went to a friends house and they made margaritas and I was so bummed!! I had ONE sip and it was the tastiest thing in the world! That one sip was enough to satisfy me for a few more months. I know I can wait to indulge myself because I know it's for the best. But that doesn't make it any easier.

Re: how long to pump and dump?

I was going to say 3 weeks, too. The biggest problem I see with that is that your little one might develop a really strong bottle preference in that amount of time, jeopardizing your entire nursing relationship.
