I haven't been on the forum in awhile dealing with a lot of things but I need some advice. Well here is my dilemma...
My first daughter was a micro preemie born at 27 weeks gestation. She is now 15 months old. We weaned around 8 months old because of medications I had to take at the time not being safe for her and others causing her some of the same miserable side effects that they were me... It broke my heart! I had planned on bfing until at least one year and probably longer (up to two years or so). I was sooo disappointed. We had worked so hard to start truly bfing after she came homeat 2 1/2 months old and had defied so many odds about being able to keep it up. She still gets one bottle of milk in the AM and one at bedtime. All other times she gets water in her sippy cup.
That being said... We are expecting baby number two the first of June and I have been debating on if I will/will not or should/should not let my daughter nurse again if she is interested. Since she is still getting her couple bottles in the AM and PM I know she still has the physical concept of how to but I just am needing some advice on this.
Anyone have any input?
