My baby is 8mos old and he's happily on his way with BLS and we've enjoyed a challenging but worth it relationship nursing and pumping while I work.
He doesn't want to nurse at lunch anymore, and is starting to get distressed when I come to visit to nurse, or just visit in general and leave so I will be replacing that with a bottle. He also won't nurse on dropoff/pickup and we have an hour drive so that's another bottle or two I'm replacing.
So, this is turning into a only nurse in the evening and nighttime relationship during the week. When I have time off and we are together he loves nursing and nurses lots.
I just worry, we're going about 12-14 hours without nursing, and I pump at work but.. seems like the beginning of the end?
I also worry because he doesn't drink as much pumped as he does when he nurses, but I try to remind myself that my pumped milk has tons of the hindmilk in it so it's probably not necessary. He loves eating solids and he's gaining/growing well and happy minus some teething.
I guess I just mostly want to be nursing not giving so many bottles, but he's chosen bottles because he just can't focus on nursing at daycare. I guess I just feel like this is leading to weaning or full time bottles, and I don't want that.
