My baby is 11.5 months now. Started some solids around 7 months. From the past 1 week, I feel like I am drying up and need help figuring out what to do about it. These are the signs for which I feel I am drying up:
1. When baby nurses, he tries sucking for some time. But because of no milk coming out (I think), he either lets go without crying and gets busy playing or just does comfort sucking.
2. I am a SAHM but I pump twice a day after nursing. During both times, I am hardly getting any milk now, barely enough to cover the base of the bottles.
3. Baby used to poop 1-3 times a day. But since last 4 days he is going once every other day, and that too like pellets.
I don't know whether really I am drying up, I so wanted to continue bf beyond first year . From my diet and lifestyle wise, nothing has changed except I have become much more active since the past 2 weeks and also started little bit of running.
For baby also, his feeding, nursing schedules have not changed. We co-sleep and he nurses in the night too.
What are my options now? Should I start cow's milk? My baby is also small, barely 18.5 pounds so am worried now. Please help!
