I had a recent issue of severely decreased supply for my 7.5 month old, which I think I may have corrected (fingers crossed) with fenugreek and more pumping during the day. But this got me wondering....since he is eating solids now, what would I have done if I was not able to get my supply back up? Go through the frozen milk I have until it was gone and then switch to formula? Since milk is still supposed to be his main source of nutrition for a while he couldn't just wean to solids alone at 7.5 months, right? I never really had a "plan" for how long we would breastfeed. I knew I really wanted to EBF for 6 months and thought it would be great if we could make it to a year. Honestly I am not overly crazy about doing it well into toddlerhood though. I like breastfeeding and am not really ready to wean at all, especially not at night. But we are talking about TTC at 9 months and I've heard getting pregnant changes the milk composition/taste and a lot of babies wean themselves. So again, at that point would I need to switch to formula or would he do just solids? Or maybe he'll still like it and I'll have done all this worrying for nothing :) Thanks for any help/advice you BTDT momma's may have!
