What expierences have you had with this? So far my milk is ok and has not dried up at all. I have tried a bottle w/formula and my son wants NOTHING to do with it. So any ideas? My concern is that what if my milk does dry up and he still does not want the bottle???
Thanks in advance for any advice!!!

First I wanted to say thank you to everyone who has given me advice. Here is a update. Friday I went and actually saw a doctor ( not the one who suggested I wean). I had a ultrasound done and I am 7 weeks and 5 days now and the due date is Jan 16. The doctor I saw just told me to keep nursing and if I had to make changes my body would let me know. So far everything is going well. Thanks again for your encouragment and advice!!
