I am looking for some help with ways to transition my 13 month towards solids or alternative formula.
After a very sleep deprived period, along with extended bf with my first dd, which impacted my marriage and health negatively-I decided that I would not go as long with with my second dd. My goal was to do gentle weaning by the time she is 2 years old. So here we are-my health is starting to suffer and I know in part it is due to 4-6 night wakings with the youngest dd (13months).
We are starting a gentle night weaning process tonight. So that is the first step.
In addition, my milk supply is not great even though she is at about 90% bf. I feel very confident that I want to move towards a change where dd is getting more nutrition from alternative formula than breast milk. I tried the Sally Falon recipe, but it appears she is allergic to raw cows milk-she broke out in hives-the same reaction she gets from eggs.
Any suggestions towards gentle and nutritious transition foods and milk alternatives that don't involve cow milk. Something she can have in a bottle for comfort and nutrition because she is just not that interested in solids.
I am not looking for "stick it out": advice. It was a very harmful strategy with my first, and I wish I had heeded the messages my body was sending me earlier. Thanks
