My dd is 9 months. I have been bf for that time, with one issue of low milk at 4 months. We worked through that but it took LOTS of effort, pumping, vitamins, fenugreek, etc. I was exhausted!!
Now I have a low supply again. Ran out of frozen milk (I had lots) from giving her one 4oz bottle, then two 4 oz bottles a day for about 1.5 weeks. I waited to long to start pumping again.
I still nurse maybe 2xs a day in morning but I'm worried she's going to wean before too long. She seems to like the formula and is sleeping like never before. I feel so bad though because I really wanted to nurse for at least a year, as recommended. I have been pumping, taking fenugreek, etc. for about five days and no significant increase.
How can I keep her from weaning herself before I get things back up? SHould I give her the formula in a cup? She seems to HATE that although she will take it.
Please reply even if you aren't an expert!
