Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
We started EBF, and had to supplement around 8 weeks (low supply, cluster feeding, angry baby...exhausted mama!)
When I went back to work at 12 weeks, the evening feedings just started to get harder and harder, and I started to pump more than BF. About 4 weeks ago, I dropped our only nursing session (whenever he would wake up at night).
I officially EP plus formula. I would say we're about 60% BM/40% formula. I keep saying I'll give up the pump if we ever dip below 50/50. Although I hate pumping with a passion, I still keep doin' it. =)
ETA: I picked "SS"
Hi ladies, it's been a while!! (Eve looks way different from the pic in my siggy now!)
I still EBF at home (other than solids), but I stopped being able to keep up with her while pumping months ago (the pump just isn't the same as a baby), so I pump at work, but while she's at daycare she gets about 1/2 breastmilk 1/2 formula. This is a secret from my MIL though :).
I voted SS because we started BFing and I wanted to stay BFing but LO developed a milk protein allergy and I had to switch to Alimentum.
I tried going dairy/soy free with my diet, but it didn't fully resolve the problem - so we switched and he is doing so much better. I wish we could still be BFing though, I miss it :(
I voted SS too. We do one short nursing session a day, the rest of the time I pump because she is just too hard on my nips - so I basically EP.
We also now supplement with formula because I'm not producing enough for a full day's intake. She gets ~28ozs a day and about 12 of those are from formula.
utlawgirl:Proud to still be 100% BF (other than solids and water). It;s been quite a journey, but I'm so glad we've made it this far!
