Any advice on what to feed him? DD transitioned to goat milk at 13 mo. For when away from me, but DS is not even 9 mo., so I don't want to over-rely on it to his detriment. Do we have to go to formula?
breastfeeding, babywearing, homeschooling Heathen parent to my little Wanderer, 7 1/2 , and baby Elf-stone, 3/11!
In the meantime, I would supplement with formula. IMO it's a safe, adequate substitute that's designed for human babies.
If we were talking about a few ounces a day AND he was eating a wide variety of solids, I wouldn't have a problem with using an animal milk but if it's the bulk of his diet, I'd choose formula.
I hope he's nursing again soon.
I would make home made raw formula so he's consuming living instead of dead food. Have you tried teas to help with your supply? Coconut water (right out of the coconut) can help with your electrolyte and fluid loss from your illness and help you bounce back and heal up faster
