My baby is about 8 months old, i work full time so most of the time he gets breast milk in a bottle. Plus he get his other food cereal, fruit, veggies, meats. My milk supply is getting kinda low and i feel like hes not getting enough.i have tried the mothers milk and it makes me sick to my stomach. I nurse him at night, he still gets up sometimes every three hrs sometimes every two and even sometimes even every hr, i am trying to just kinda let him fuss a little and wait to see if he goes back to sleep. sometimes he does but not always and he mostly just wants to nurse but only for a minute or two then goes back to sleep. i don't know if there is something i can do to get him to sleep through the night, he is a really big baby do i thought he would be now. I hardly get enough to get him enough to get through 7 hours or so with out me. my goal is to at least give him breast milk for the rest of his first year but is it ok to start mixing it with formula, if so how would i go about doing that, half and half? And is it ok to do both for the next 4 months?
