I think I just reassurance. My 6mth old nurses every 1-2 hours, even at night. I pump and pump and pump just to get enough for him to go to daycare, but I have nothing left over if I ever need to get away for longer than those 1-2 hours. Plus, I'm exhausted from being up all night nursing. And no, its not just him using me as a pacifier, he's actually nursing, I'm getting a let down, he's getting quite a bit of milk; I hear him swallowing a lot.
I really have been trying to not use formula with him. I had to use it PT with my older son when I went back to work. Like I said, I can pump enough for daycare, but nothing left over. My DH and I haven't been out alone in forever; I'm in a wedding coming up where I'll be gone all weekend, as its out of state, and I didn't want to have to bring him - but I'm not sure I can pump enough for a whole weekend.
I guess I just know I'll get down on myself if I do go with some formula and I've been putting it off. Does anyone have any suggestions to get him to nurse less, although I don't think it'll work and I don't want him to go hungry, but I'm kinda going insane having this baby attached to me all.the.time. I know that's what babies do, but at 6mths, I'm kinda needing a break KWIM?
