DD will be 10 months old on the 15th. At her 9 month dr apt they wanted me to start supplementing with formula because she wasn't gaining enough. I didn't. But I have always watched her diaper count very closely to be sure she's meeting it. She has started some solids though she mostly just plays with it and gets very little in her mouth.
Lately she wants to nurse less and less. I keep trying because I want her to nurse more and gain more weight. She's at the point yesterday where she nursed at 1pm and didn't want to nurse again until 7pm. I tried. Trust me, I tried. But she just refused. She has absolutely no interest in it. How is she going to gain weight this way? And I just know it's going to make my supply drop. It would be so much easier to just grab a bottle and feed her a little bit whenever she wants it than to constantly be whipping a boob out to only get denied.
On top of that, we cosleep and she wants to comfort nurse all night long. I'm so over it. I want my space back. I want sleep. I love her to death but I'm tired of being sucked on all night. I feel like it would be easier to transitition her in to her own space if she was on a bottle and DH could get up and feed her and meet her needs too.
I'm just frustrated and annoyed. So...remind me why I should keep nursing...
