Nursing Strike Concerns
bebebarr posted:
Ok so my 10 month old stopped nursing about 2 1/2 weeks ago. I have been pumping - however - I am getting like 6-9 oz a day. I am fearful that my supply will continue to decline and what I am pumping will not be enough (he is eating food in addition to drinking what I pump in a cup). He's like 6 weeks shy of his 1st birthday. Will I have to offer him formula??? I REALLY don't want to have to give him any formula. What do you guys think? I read he should be drinking 16-24 oz of breastmilk/formula a day at this age....

think you can start whole milk instead of formula

you can check with pediatrician .Mine stopped at 9 months so i gave him yo baby yoghurt and whole milk when he was 10 months instead of formula
