okay, i've been aimlessly reading several posts which have similar dilemmas like me. i even spoke to my LC about this and posted a few days ago on here (see LO refusing 2nd bottle)
anyways, i just want some peace of mind . in the past week, my LO has been refusing her 2nd bottle @ her daycare. a bit of background: she's 9 months and eating 2 solid meals/day and BF while at home. she's never been a huge eater and i only manage to pump 2- 3oz. bottles during my day @ work.
so far, the recommendations have been to continue doing the pumping 2x/day, to add a 3rd meal (meaning add a lunch solid), and to pump wean since she's pretty much stuck on refusing the bottles and create a stash for emergency usage.
today, i checked in on LO and they said she threw up her 1st bottle but took her morning solid meal. does this mean she's done w/ the daytime bottles, is she on a bottle strike if there is such a thing, or is she just happier w/ getting the milk from the cow (ala me ) when she's w/ me at home?
i'm so afraid to reduce my pumping as i don't want to drop my supply for her when i'm w/ her. does that happen when u partial wean? i don't mind keeping up w/ the BF at home, but if i can and if it doesn't hurt, i would like to pump wean during the day. it's been over a week and LO has continually been sporadic w/ taking her bottles so i'm assuming she's done and away w/ that. i'm just feeling anxiety over weaning since i wanna at least make it to BF my LO to the year or more. also, how does pump weaning affect the weekend supply w/ EBF??
Thanx so much for any input u can throw my way!!
