My angel will be 1 on Christmas day....She's starting to limit her breastfeeding lately. She nurses well in the morning, but during the day/evening, lately, it has been hit or miss. I have 2 issues that I'm on the fence about...One is I really would not like to give my child cow's milk. She was VERY sensitive to it when I would ingest it, therefore I was dairy free since she was a few months old. In the past few months, I have given her a small bit of yogurt to "test" it, and she seemed ok. I would like to continue to breastfeed her, however she has been showing signs of self weaning. I'm scared that this may be the end... Can anyone give me links to information regarding how much milk a one year old should be getting? I'm thinking that maybe I should start to pump again and give bm in a sippy cup since she loves that.
My other issue is is that I would like to get my cycle back! I want to try to conceive again (someday!) and some of my friends that are still bfing got their period a few months ago. I know this is a stupid question, but is there anyway that I can get this back while still lactating?
Thanks in advance for the information!
