As the title suggests i have decided to wean DS (6 weeks) from the breast. We have had issues with him sucking for hours at a time and we have found the issue is i am not having a let down. No matter how hard i try to make it 'let down' i dont. This led to a cranky hungry overtired baby and he hadnt put on the recommended weight at his last check up. It also led to a cranky tired Mummy!
We have already started supplementing feeds for bottles and he is a different baby. So happy and will sleep, he is content playing rather then only being on my boob. At first i thought id mix feed but now i want to fully wean.
I am wondering how you weaned without issues with mastitis etc and any tips you have for me to get through? I guess im wondering what the timeline would be before my milk dries up.
So i made it until 1230 before my breasts were slightly engorged. I dont know if thats a reflection of my undersupply? But it almost seems too easy?
Can anyone suggest the best 'routine' for me for knocking off the BF?
Sorry my post is a bit all over the place!
