Dilemma: BFing or formula
My DS is 3 months old today and for the last 5 days he has been eating every 1-1.5 hours when he used to go every 2-3 hours. He was waking 1-2 times a night and now it's at least 3 times to eat and one night it was 7 times. My breasts never feel full anymore. I know this could be a growth spurt but for this long? Is my supply going down? I enjoy nursing him but this is wearing me out.
I'm on the mini-pill (have been since he was 6 wo), I took a pregnancy test just to rule that out and it was negative. I have had some very light bleeding the last 3 days. I was trying to make a freezer stash so DH and I can have dates but over the week I was able to get less and less each morning (from 3.5 oz to .75 oz).
Tonight my DH brought up the topic of switching DS to formula since all it seems I do is BF and he's always hungry. I started crying and he doesn't understand why
