I'm new to the forum, but just wanted to say thanks for the info. I'm in a similar situation as lunamoth. I've been BFing my son since birth (he's almost 12 months) and trying to decide about weaning. My son is allergic to cow's milk. I did an elimination diet when he was 5 weeks old after five weeks of rashes, irritability, gastric distress, nasal congestion, etc., etc., etc. Two weeks after dropping all dairy, he was a different baby! I contemplated BFing till he's two yrs old, but he's been giving me some signs that maybe my milk production isn't as much as he needs. It's hard to tell how much I'm still making, but he works a lot harder for it now and fusses quite a bit (and bites a lot more than he used to) trying to get it out. I also haven't felt much letdown when he feeds in the past month. I'm not surprised as he's eating a TON of solids now. So we started looking into just weaning at a year, but cow's milk is out and I've got concerns about soy because of the phytoestrogens, etc. So what's a girl to do? How do I know he's getting enough breastmilk at this point? I'll look into the rice milk/protein solution mentioned earlier. Any other suggestions would be welcomed, including the issue of amount of breastmilk needed at this age, etc. Thanks again, ladies! This forum is a godsend!
