1st off I just want to thank all the ladies on here that hear the same concerns over and over and continue to give advice and support - This group is the only support I have had for breastfeeding
DS is nearing 1 year and still not too interested in solids, some days yes, other days not so much.
I will have to go back to work soon, and it seems I am not longer responding to a pump. Working is not set regular hours for me and pumping while working is not an option. Also, DS is teething and wants to nurse all the time not for hunger but for comfort. I was totally fine with him using me for comfort until he started biting. Ive tried different things but it wont stop. I know he knows its wrong to do it because sometimes I can warn him not to bite and he doesn't - but mostly its sucking one second and chomping the next. I know hes just trying to get some relief but I can't depend on meds as he is in pain alot (he has 8 teeth I think hes starting on the molars) and now I don't know if hes hungry or in pain and I dont want to refuse him the breast all the time.
We have gone through quite a bit and Im so glad I am going to make it to a year. I hope someone can give me some advice on how to handle the biting, and if we choose to start the weaning process, do you give formula after a year? straight to cows milk? If you start limiting Bf, will he start eating regularly?
