My son is 7 months old and he is already on solids but my goal is to continue to breastfeed for a year. He has breakfast lunch and maybe dinner if he is interested, in the after noon he still feeds every two hours and nurses to sleep and will wake up once during the night to feed.
My mother and most of my aunts absolutly insist that I give him formula because the two days which i work saturday and sunday (as a hostess 9-4) he does not want to drink milk from a bottle. Number one reason why i havent looked for a worth while full time job is because i want to be able to be with my son full time and not leave him with a sitter and be able to hit the one year mark.
Please i know people have their opinions about solids but keep it to yourself. Im just upset and concerned that theyll give my son formula while im not around. I dont want him to have any. Plus i still have milk and pump while im at work. It is less fatty and more on the watery side then a few months ago and my son is in the 25% for weight but hes in the 96% for length. Doc says hes healthy and happy baby. Im just so upset with my family.
I live with my mother because im a single mom and i need to stay until i finish my bachelours and she just makes it so hard. Plus ill be the first daughter with a college degree and its just so frustrating that i dnt have a partner to help me withthe baby so i dnt have to put up with my familys bashing
