Re: Sad but need to wean at 6 months
It doesn't have to be all or nothing. If you have to supplement with formula because you're not making enough or to save your sanity, that's fine! Just don't feel like not being able to fill your baby's every need means that you need to quit. I totally understand if you WANT to quit, and if you do, that's okay. It's your personal choice.
Is your husband helping at night? As Djs.mom pointed out, weaning doesn't mean that your baby is suddenly going to sleep through the night, and you could wind up more tired because of the work involved in making and feeding bottles. Would it work to have your husband give the baby a bottle of expressed milk or formula, allowing you to get more sleep? I always felt that a 5 hour stretch made all the difference to my ability to function!
