Hi, has anyone done this? LO is 20m, we only use SNS at naptime and bedtime. I don't have much milk left and his latch is not great but he will comfort (?) nurse at other times. I talked to a lactation consultant and we thought the only way to do it was cold turkey really (with lots of warning, explaining etc). Has anyone done it any other ways? I thought of just stopping bedtime, and he could have a bottle and then nurse without the SNS, and keep it at naptimes because he actually falls asleep nursing at naptimes.
When I have tried not using it he's gone around to where it would be and asked me to put it on! :)
I am just tired of using it and get irritated using it at bedtime. Overnight he has a bottle because it did not matter how good my supply was he would not nurse without the SNS. I went onto the bottle overnight when he was one year old. He has cows milk in the bottle (yeah, not great I know but it's a miracle he's bf at all, won't go into the whole back story!).
Thank you x
I don't have any advice but wow on using the SNS for 20 months! That's incredible and wonderful. What a commitment. Hope he'll wean off of it smoothly!
