I just had Ariella's 9 month appointment, and I received some recommendations regarding what I am supposed to do by 12 months. But, I'm worried this will cause my supply to tank and prevent me from nursing much past 12 months. Currently, Ariella gets 15oz BM while I'm at work along with 6oz of solids. Then, she nurses 4 times. She does sleep through the night.
The doctor said I need to reduce her BM intake to 12-16oz by 12 months. Plus, I am supposed to switch her over from bottle to sippy cups (now she only gets water in her sippy cup), and she's supposed to be fully off of purees and onto table foods by 12 months.
I'm worried all these changes will cause my supply to tank and to make us wean. 12-16oz of BM seems like so little for 12 months. For you moms who have nursed well beyond a year, what do you think? Thanks.
