My son will be 8 months this coming Thursday. I have breastfed exclussively since birth with little to no problem. We introduced cereal at 5 1/2 months and solids at 6 months with meats added at 7 1/2 months (all per the advice and direction of our pedatrician). I am thinking my milk supply is diminishing because when I go to pump I can barely get an ounce out. He is also getting up every night between 130 a.m.-2am and again between 330 am and 4am. From 3 weeks to 5 months he was sleeping 10 hours a night. My pedatrician said that he doesn't need to be nursed in the middle of the night. (He is a healthy boy at over 25 pounds and about 30 inches long.) The doctor says that I should soothe him and let him cry it out. I have tried but he just screams and screams and I cave in and let him nurse. I am heading back to work Tuesday after 8 months maternity leave. I am trying to build up a supply of milk so that he can have a bottle 2-3 times a day while I am at work. His typical feeding schedule is: wake up by 6am - nurse, cereal somewhere around 8am, nurse around 10am (naptime), lunch around noon, nurse again around 2pm (naptime) dinner around 5pm, nurse around 7pm, then off to bed. Then he wakes up twice in the middle of the night. I am trying to pump the opposite side he nurses on after each nursing. I also pump before I go to bed at night. I am getting very little. What can I do? Should I supplement with formula??? Not something I want to do, but will if I must. Looking for any advice. I have heard and read that when you add solids your milk supply can begin to diminish. Has this happened to anyone out there? If so, what did you do???
