My LO is 11 months and I have begun weaning in preparation of going back to work full time a little early.
I am slowly replacing breasfeedings with bottle (formula) feedings. I dropped the 2nd breastfeeding session 3 days ago after a pretty successful first feeding replacement last week.
Today and yesterday I find my LO is not taking much by bottle, but she is not looking for me to breastfeed her either. This morning I breastfed her when she woke, then before her first nap bottle fed her. She only drank 2 oz. When she woke from her nap I offered her a bottle (because Im worried she isnt getting enough) and she had no interest at all. She is not angry or frustrated, and shows no signs she is looking for the breast instead.
Yesterday she only took about 3 oz in the am (bottle) and then 4 oz. in the afternoon, along with her usual breastfeeding sessions otherwise.
Do you think she is getting enough, and should I not focus on the numbers so much? She eats 3 balanced solid meals a day and is 50th% percentile for weight.
Your help with weaning experience would be appreciated. I am not going to return to breastfeeding, as I work 12 hour days, very busy, could not keep up pumping and never successfully pumped enough milk to feed LO anyway.
