Hi, I am a mother to a beautiful 8.5 month old girl. I have exclusively BF her and have cherished the time together. She will not take a bottle or any formula at all for that matter. For the last two months, she will take water from a sippy cup but if I put any EBM in, she won't drink it.
My problem is that in a few months, I return to work and can no longer BF. She nurses 3 times a day (sometimes 2) and is eating solids. I am trying to stop one feed at a time, although she is fighting me on it.
The biggest problem is that she uses me to fall asleep and she wakes 3 - 4 times a night to nurse. How could I do that when I am back to work.
I need a tearless solution for me and baby. Any suggestions?
