Supply issue, or my nerves getting the best of me??
Hello, My name is Christi, and I'm new on this board! I just wanted to see if anyone has had a similar experience, or if I could get any advice. My son will be 7 months old next week, and I'm a stay at home mommy. I have been BF him, no formula, since day one. He began solids at 5 and a half months, and is still just getting a small amount once per day around lunchtime. (mostly homemade fruits and veggies, plus a little Gerber oatmeal a few times per week). We co-slept until 2 weeks ago, when I transitioned him into his crib. He still wakes 2-3 times per night for feedings. I figured I would see a small drop in my supply since he used to just hang out on my breast all night and now he doesn't, but I'm getting nervous!! I feel like I'm losing my milk! I never feel full anymore, and my breasts have shrunk, which has never happened before now. Also, my son seems more frustrated when feeding...he seems a little unsatisfied to me. He has even started biting me when feeding!! I'm seeing plenty of wet diapers, but I'm confused here.....does anyone have anything to share about what I"m going through? Is it a combo of teething, solids and night time separation?? I really don't want to use formula at all, but I'm worried that if I continue to drop that's what will happen. I have a call into the LC and am waiting for a call back. Help a nervous FTM out if you can....thank you :-)
