She does self-feed some solids, but not nearly enough to not be having mama milk. Plus she loves her nursies. Help! Is my milk really going to dry up? What do I do for my DD if it does?
i got pregnant again when my dd was only 4 months. my ob told me to wean also. i didn't. i still had milk til i she was 7 or 8 months. she is 11 months now and still nurses even though my supply is pretty much gone. it was gone completly last month. this month it seems like i am starting to get more milk though i think it is colustrum because i am like 33 weeks. its not much but she seems more satisfied with it. she doesn't cry as much at night any more or drink as much milk. oh when my supply left i had to start supplementing with whole milk. it is the only thing that she will take instead of breast milk. she won't take any type of formula. she has done pretty well with it.
so really you don't know if your milk is going to dry up or not. you don't know how long you will have milk. your dd will adapt if you do dry up. i would suggest to try formula but i think that at her age she would be able to handel whole milk but every child is different and can handel differen't things. so if you do dry up just try different things til you find something she will take instead. she will adapt. she might be fussy through it. mine wasn't really just at night, but we got through it.
you'll be ok just don't worry about it til you come to that bridge if you even do.
