I am new here, this is my first post. My boy is 3 mo old. When he was a few weeks old I got a REALLY bad mastitis (sp?) and wasn't able to nurse him. So I pumped and pumped and pumped to make sure that I don't have to use formula. I know formula is fine for others, but for me it is very important to feed him breast milk. Anywhooo, now, I am finally healed and can nurse him, but I don't think he is getting enough. I'll nurse him for a day or so, but then he starts waking up a whole lot more at night and just seems like he is hungry all the time. When I pump and just give him a bottle, he still wakes up during the night (every 2-3 hrs), but not as much as when he was nurse.
Does anyone has any ideas on how I can transition him? My goal is to nurse him until he is 1 and I guess I can continue pumping for the next 9 months, but OMG, not only it is PITA, but I would also like to go back to actual nursing.
Thank you much,
