Ok, not sure if this was the proper place to post...sorry!
I actually pray my LO will not wean and we will go on to tandem nurse! I am 18 weeks preg (unexpectedly) and due in May. My DD just turned 9 mos. We started solids slowly at 6mos, but she has taken to them well including eggs, dairy and meat. She was EBF and never took a bottle. We use the sippy cup now...but she is no pro at it.
My supply is still there, she still has wet diapers...not like before, but she is not dehydrated by any means. We continue to nurse on demand and all night I tried to build up a supply as soon as we found out, I don't have a ton. And because she refused the SNS I waste a lot when I unthaw it for her sippy I am so reluctant to unthaw more and see it go down the drain. I am the only one home with her during the day and she doesn't take BM from her sippy as well for me. She will take water though My mom and DH can get her to take BM, but they are not with her a ton.
Anyway, as I tap into my supply and see it disappear I know I will have to move on to something else. I really really don't want to give her formula! Can I start her on whole milk. I am reluctant to ask the pedi...they are so about formula anyway
Can I introduce her to a little whole milk now? Can I add a little to the BM to make the BM supply stretch a little father? She is still continuing to nurse so its not like I would be giving her much...I just hate the thought of formula
