For the last week my 81/2 month old son has not been nursing very well. Then today he has givin me a really hard time so I tried to express an nothing would come out. Poor guy was hungary and I couldn't feed him. Luckly we have some formula in the cupboard and I made him a 2oz bottle and he sucked it down so I fixed him another 2oz bottle same thing. The whole time I was fixing the bottle and feeding him I was sobbing uncontrollably. I don't know why I am not producing much milk anymore. I have been eating right and drinking plenty of fluids. I was planning on bfing for a full year but if I can't produce than won't happen. It might sound dumb but, I feel like if I can't nurse him he won't need me anymore. They fact that other people can now give him his milk breaks my heart and every time I think about it I cry. Does any one have advice may about how to produce more milk or cope with not being able to bf anymore?
