I'm in the process of weaning my 15 month old daughter. I have completely weaned off the pump at work and we were working on completely weaning her off breast milk. However, she is not taking to it very well at night and she isn't tolerating cow's milk or goat's milk very well (she's been constipated for a few weeks) and I feel extremely guilty for not letting her nurse when she asks for it at night because she gets super upset and it just breaks my heart. Although I can calm her with a bottle. I still nurse her first thing in the morning, so I still have some milk, but I know my supply is very low.
Reason for weaning:
We're planning on TTC #2 in August and I didn't want to continue breast feeding while pregnant because I can't imagine breast feeding being comfortable with a big belly.
1. Would it be possible to get a supply back if I start her back on night time feedings alone or would I have to pump as well?
2. Should I just continue in the weaning process since August is only a few months away and I would have to go through this horrible weaning process anyway?
3. Is it safe to breastfeed while pregnant? I've heard it could cause contractions and lead to early labor.
I just don't know what to do. I feel so guilty. I'm also open to any advice or words of encouragement. Thanks ladies.
