Re: Breastfeeding with Down Syndrome?
sounds like you've already done a lot of thinking and research on it... that has prepared you a lot I'm sure!!
my son with down's was hospitalized shortly after birth...so I was not able to breastfeed...although I was young, and I didn't feel successful with my first son (i gave up after 6 weeks)...so with Jared, I pumped while he was hospitalized, and for the first 6 weeks, and that pumping, I tell ya.. EXHAUSTING...pump, feed, pump, feed...your breasts and the baby are rarely on the same schedule!!! ha.
I think patience and endurance will be your best bet!! (as with any child though, of course!! )
