I'm proud to say that I've EBF for 9 months and I feel sooooo incredibly blessed to have been able to EBF for this long. I currently work part time and pump the days I am at work. I have some minor health issues that require me to lose some more weight. Because of this, I wanted to wean by the time our son is one, because hopefully then too, I can try and get pg again. I HATE the fact that I am even talking about weaning because it makes me so sad to know that this will be over soon, and I just LOVE bfing. The bond we have created is so amazing, and I know all of you mothers know what I mean! I am almost in tears writing this. Time is flying by so incredibly fast!
I just don't know how to go about this whole process. I was told by our pedi to supplement one feeding a day, most likely the afternoon feeding with formula and let my body slowly reduce my milk supply. I do also notice my supply is slowing down in the afternoon. I don't even know what kind of formula to buy. Any suggestions? I really would like to use an organic formula, but again, I have no idea. Nothing will ever mimic breastmilk and I know that. I obviously want to still nurse at night since we co sleep and he still wakes up every few hours to nurse. Will my body just know to adjust?
Any help would be much appreciated! I value your opinions more than friends and such who have never breastfed and think that I can just stop on a dime!
