Dd is now 8 mo. Up until 6 mo, she was still nursing every 1 1/2 hours, even through the night. In needing more sleep, and more time with my toddler, since I stay home he's all I got. I tried the bottle. We experimented, a lot! I also logged it all, how much & when she ate, and my diet. She spit up a lot and was very gassy when nursing. On the bottle, she would refuse to take more than 2 oz of my milk at a time. Spit up every time, and woke a lot at night with gas. If I gave her formula, she'd down 4 oz, burp and be happy. She'd sleep better and not spit up at all. It couldn't have been dairy since I cut it out for a while and no change, plus the formula is milk based.
Any suggestions as to why she has such a hard time with my breast milk? I'm getting a little discouraged since this is supposed to be the best option for the baby, but it seems to not be for mine. (I've altered my diet several times to see if it was something I was eating)
