    If I could have breastfed, I would have as long as we wanted/needed to. Screw everyone else's opinion. Do what works for you and Lucy. You're an amazing mama

    Miss X, how did you go about day weaning? I don't want to stop just cut back a bit to two day time feeds plus her one in the middle of the night. She really doesn't eat very much!!!

    Thanks everyone for your support
    I was pressured into weaning Oscar at 9 months, and I regretted it ALOT afterwards.
    BF is often hard work, but the lovely close cuddles are worth it for me.
    I don't understand why people (Mum, my sister, etc) feel the need to interfere.

    Does she have a sippy cup for water? I make sure Lucy gets fluids in this way, between morning and night feeds. It may help you with day weaning...at least thirst wont be the issue during the day.

    Yep. I was expressing after every feed and only getting 10-30ml out of both sides combined. motilium makes me drowsy. We tried hiring the hospital pump too for three weeks to help but it didn't increase. I was offering the breast also and she would get frustrated. The left side went first and it wasn't long before the right. So we mix fed for the first month or so. I think it was a combination of things.
    1. My boobs didn't grow at all during pregnancy which according to the midwives for a sign of potential problems
    2. She was tube fed as she was Prem and was too tired to suck so initially I was only able to offer the breast from day 3 and every second feed. On day one, they wouldn't help with expressing!!
    I was expressing in between but had zero lactation support and it was as if because she was in special care, I was totally ignored as a patient still so had to argue with the midwives for help.

    Anyway, I tried and felt so cheated about it all and miserable. But, if I persisted with so little, she would have starved and been re admitted so I gave up. Formula it is. I guess we are lucky to have such good formula now.

    I've heard from a few PCOS'ers now that they had a lack of supply. That's what I'm struggling with at the moment. DD is bottle fed as she refuses to latch (my nipples are too flat). So I'm expressing and formula feeding. I'm takng Motilium and Fenugreek. Come to think of it.. my boobs didn't grow during pregnancy either.
