I have a 6-1/2 month old son who I’ve breastfed since he was born (with the occasional formula supplement). I started him on solids (as recommended by my pediatrician) at 4 months and continued to breastfeed. A few weeks ago, he started to refuse my left breast, and now he’s not that interested in breastfeeding at all. This is not a huge problem, as I do have formula and he is eating solids (and is gaining weight as he should), but I’m experiencing a terrible sense of loss that I never expected to feel. I’m just wondering if there’s anyone else out there who’s gone through this, and how you dealt with it. Thanks for any support you can give.
