My husband and I are adopting a little girl from China. She will be between 6-12 months when we get her, most likely around 7 or 8 months. I know there are ways for me to stimulate my breast milk, but won't she be too old to take to breastfeeding?
I'd love to breastfeed her. I think it would be wonderful for her health and also for our bonding, but we will be working against 7-8 months of bottle feeding and most likely she will have begun on solid foods by the time she comes to us.
Opinions anyone? I'd be grateful for your thoughts. I'm thinking this won't be possible, but I thought I'd stop and ask anyway. Never hurts to gather knowledge.
Thanks so much!
