Just moved from another post here.
My DS is almost 6 months and we decided to start trying for a second baby. We waited for our son 3 years and we feal like there is no time to waste. My LO is BF, We started solids 3 days ago with 2 teaspoons of applesauce. He has been a little constipated though, and I regret buying apples and doing it myself instead of ready jar baby food. But back on the topic:) My doctor wants me to stop BF as it will speed up the cycle. I didnt have my period yet.
I feed at 3am, 7am, 11am, 4pm, 6pm, 7.30pm and 11pm. At first I thought of weaning day feeds, but after reading these posts I think maybe better would be trying to limit night feeds? What do you think would be better? To be honest I was going with what would be more convenient for me, didnt know that it makes difference:/
My DS takes bottle well, we were giving him formula when away from home. He sometimes was too distracted or scared to take bottle. He had to turn away from the room and was all shaky. But I am really hesitant about formula... I know many kids eat it and dont even BF, but I justfeel like after we fought so hard for BF it is such a loss for both of us. I feel like I am taking something so precious from my baby. This is all so sad for me:(
I thought I will be able to feed for 12mnths and go to cows milk, but at 6 mnths it's too early, i know.
My mom inlaw wants me to mix cows milk with wated instead of formula. Daaaaa, im so confused:(
