Ladies I am feeling incredibly torn. I had every intention of doing a 'baby-led' weaning but I don't think my supply is up for the challange. My little guy will be 1 on Halloween, and he is nursing less and less during the day.
I should mention I work full time, and I am given adequate time to pump. Sometimes I pump for my full half hour breaks and get 2 oz or less. Now I would think this is no big deal since he has been nursing less during the day... but lately he seems to be getting irritated while nursing, like he is not getting enough. Which leads me to wonder, do I just start weaning or let it go until my supply gives up?
My son also refuses expressed milk completely. So there is no option there. All the milk I pump goes in his cereal because we have tried everything to get him to drink pumped milk. He stopped around 7 months or so.
So extra pumping sessions have done me no good in increasing my supply. And I'm not sure extra effort is worth it at this point since during some of his day time nursing sessions (when I am home with him) he seems less than interested in nursing. But others he seems frustrated by what I can only guess is less milk than he wants. Mean while he has started night waking again only soothed by nursing. I am so confused. :/
