Guess What!

After a month of non-stop biting and me pumping and my supply going down and me being fed up I finally told DH yesterday that I'm done. I hate pumping. I pumped once yesterday and only got 3 oz and decided that was it.

So today, I was moping around. I EBF to 8 months and supplemented w/ BM about 1/2 of his feeds through 9 months, so I know that is better than most moms and was great for Brodin, but I'm not ready for it to end. I have been so sad about the biting. Anyway, today I decided to give it one last try. And guess what, He latched!!!! This morning he breastfed for the first time in 3 weeks. A full 15 minutes with no biting!!!!


I know it will be rough, my supply is pretty low right now. But at least I know it is possible. And I'm going to keep trying

Re: Guess What!

Could he be biting because of the low supply?? Have you tried a SNS?

Congrats on giving it one last try! Good Job Mama

When he started biting my supply was absolutely fine. I could pump out a 6 oz bottle and feed him. Its just that somehow my body knows I'm pumping and its not a baby and slowly each day it produced less even though I pumped the same. But today he only got 10oz of formula and the rest was all me at 3 nursing sessions Today was a good day

I think I am going to give it a couple of weeks. If I can't get him to be taking most/all feedings via the breast I will purchase a SNS to help increase my supply.

Everyone else, thanks for your support, I love you guys!
