Thank you for sharing your experiences. Dd had her own problems in addition to my low supply which took me almost 6 months to get her completely on the breast and off of finger feeding. She is also a very strong-willed child, so I have been afraid of ruining a bf relationship I worked so hard to establish. However, I think you are so right that at this age she is a firmly established comfort nurser.
Dd signs "nurse pouch" or "nurse mommy" when we nurse. Last night, every time I suggested she nurse mommy, I met with adament resistance. She also nursed every hour last night and has been taking more supplement the past few days. I think she is teething, so I will wait and try again when she doesn't have that going on.
And thank you so much for sharing about your tandem nursing. This is something I have wondered about for when we have our next child. How will it work tandem nursing with a low supply?
Thank you ladies!
