Quoting MissHolly:" I am just wondering when you all stopped breastfeeding and what the leading reasons for stopping was? ... [snip!] ... a lot of work I do it because it is better for my baby and me. I am thinking about doing it for the first year of her life..."
I had to supplement in the hospital because she lost so much weight. I don't know if it was my diet but my milk wasn't fatty enough, nor did I produce enough, so I would always start with breastfeeding but had to give a bottle at least 2-3 times a day. She practically nursed around the clock. I had to mess around with a lot of formulas to find one she would even like. I actually started supplementing with soy milk when she was about a year old, she didnt get cows milk until maybe 2, to 2 1/2. I stopped breastfeeding completely when she was about 18 months old. But by that point it was typically only night and morning feedings she was nursing for.
