My doctor did investigate other causes for my health problems. I have had a complete physical, full blood works (twice), checked for thyroid, diabetes, kidney function. Everything was normal. My doctor thinks I am just completely run down from lack of sleep, nursing and parenting responsibilities in general. I should say she did not in any way push weaning as a solution, she more suggested it, and not until after all the tests came back normal. In fact, I didn't mention I was still breastfeeding until the results were back because I didn't want her opinion to be adversely influenced by that knowledge. Her response then was like "Oooh that must be it!"
I don't eat much processed food and eat more fruits and vegetables than the average person I would think and I take pre-natal vitamins. I just can't seem to keep up. All my clothes are ridiculously big which kind of depresses me, and I don't want to invest in, what I hope, would be a temporary wardrobe. I just reached a point where I feel I want my life back.
A few months back I did give DS a few ozs of formula each day for several weeks because it seemed to settle him a little but I phased that out again. So I know he will accept it. I guess for now I will probably take it a day at a time and maybe slowly introduce some more solids. He currently gets solids twice a day, at lunch and dinner.
I tried repositioning him a little yesterday, holding him higher up, which seems to help with the nibbling feeling.
You know, it's...
