Gave 13 month old whole milk instead of breastmilk......... and this is what happened?

She slept better!!!! I still breastfeed her a couple times a day and she eats table food. She has been waking at night for quite some time now. I chalked it up to teething and allergies. And nothing seemed to help with that! I gave her whole milk to drink the past two nights before I nursed her and slept better. So could it be that my milk just isnt filling her up anymore? I dont want to quit breastfeeding quite yet. So is it ok to do both?

Breastfeeding isn't an all or nothing activity. If course you can do both.

I think it's fine to do both as long as she seems to be handling it okay.

   Whole milk will fill her up better then breastmilk and it won't hurt it. Just be careful not to over do her milk intake.

   I would also talk to your doctor about it and see what he thinks also.

I think there is something in cows milk that they say does help you sleep better. I'm not sure what it's called but I'm sure I've heard this before.

Could be a coincidence and not a pattern...

Just don't let her lay down and drink it at night.

Yes, breastmilk won't keep her as full as whole milk. If it works, do it!! Lol.
