I am so torn between letting my daughter take a bottle all day and just nursing at night (if she will) while she's sleepy, versus trying to get her back on the breast while i'm with her during the day.
I work and pump for her and she is taking a bottle at daycare. Starting a few weeks ago when she came home she would nurse only for a few minutes and then refused. She will only nurse at night when she is sleepy. So my supply started going down. I took some fenugreek and it went back up fine.
Lately she's taking to just wanting the bottle, no nursing. Part of me wants that because then she'll eat fine while at daycare. THe other part of me just wants her to be able to nurse while she's with me. But she won't. She prefers the bottle because of the flow I suppose. I can't "banish the bottle" because she needs to eat during the day.
So...I'm sad because I want to nurse her...sad because it looks like she doesn't want to anymore...and really really torn about what to do. I know I'm going through all kinds of emotions with this and don't know how to sort them out (obviously, with my rambling thread)... any advice?
