Micah's tummy troubles have continued so he was seen by a gastroenterologist (sp?) on Thursday. He believes Micah has a dairy and soy allergy so we're now going to the "liquid gold" formula and no breast milk. So after over 3 months of pumping, this is the straw that broke the camel's back. There's "a chance" we could add breast milk back into the equation in a few weeks, but only if I go strict non-dairy and non-soy. According to the doctor, it takes about 2-3 weeks for it to get out of my system (and Micah's). I don't know whether to donate the month's supply of breast milk in our deep freezer or save it and hope that Micah's tummy can handle it later on.
I've heard we might be able to get this super expensive formula covered by insurance. I'll check on Monday. Anyone out there with experience in that process? Please feel free to comment and advise.
