my baby is almost 3 months and i have been breastfeeding with an occasional formula bottle here and there so my baby is use to both forms of feeding... i enjoy breastfeeding her but its not always smooth, id thought by now shed be a pro at nursing. when shes half asleep she latches on and nurses till she is full but when shes awake she doesnt feed very long, latches and unlatches, and doesnt seem fully satisfied and fusses. also i dont feel my body is producing as much milk as it was in the beginning, especially one breast(which now, we hardley ever nurse off of because of low milk supply) im thinking i should just wean her off breast and exclusivly bottle feed..it would just be alot easier i think (for her and me) do you think its to early to wean her? or have i breastfeed her long enough for her to get what she needed from me? (dont knw if that made sence)

It won't be better for your baby if you wean, no matter what spin you put on it. Giving bottles causes breastfeeding problems. Stop the bottles and the problems will most likely stop. Babies don't need to be "used to both methods."
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breastfeeding at least 1 year, the World Health Org recommends 2. Premature weaning has lifelong health consequences for you and your baby. It has developmental and many other consequences for the baby. You will never forgive yourself if your baby gets cancer or another disease that could have been prevented by breastfeeding.
