Hello All- my LO just turned 12 months and I had always intended to cut back breastfeeding to the first morning and bedtime feedings. LO has been exclusively breastfed up to about a week ago. I had intended on doing a very gradual weaning process but very recently got pregnant. My supply has drastically lessened and, on top of that, it seems like my LO is not interested in breastfeeding during the day. She is still very into it first thing in the am and at night so I don't think my milk has changed taste.
My dilemma is that I need to supplement the milk that she isn't getting (or at least some of it) and I am not sure how/how much. LO is eating much more solid food, which she loves. She doesn't drink anything else, expect the seldom sip of water. I tried to give her formula for the first time ever last week (Pediatrician said I should before LO turns 1, even though she was about a week away…). LO hated the formula and I felt like we might as well just try WCM since we would be doing that soon anyway. LO also equally hated the WCM. She has tried it about 10 times, takes a sip or two and stops.
Does anyone have advice about what I should do? Should I try to increase my supply (I really had hoped to stop pumping and cut back on bfing)? I am nervous that my LO isn't getting enough liquid though. Thanks for taking the time to read!
