DS is 9 months old. We started baby-led weaning at around 7 months or so. He is now eating more and more solid foods, and loving it.
He is, of course, nursing less, and taking less breastmilk at daycare. I work, and I am still able to pump more than he needs. However, the past two weeks, I notice I'm pumping less and less, and my supply is starting to go down.
My fear is that my supply won't level out with his demand, but that instead, my milk will dry up before we're ready to stop nursing. I'm also afraid that DS will wean himself early. When he was born, I promised myself I would nurse him for a year minimum. I really want to meet that goal.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Are my fears unfounded?
We try to follow all the baby led weaning guidelines, and I offer him food only after I've offered him the breast. Sometimes he will refuse the breast, but want to nosh on some food... that really concerns me.
