Has someone confirmed that your milk is low? Sometimes i feel like my milk is low but its really not. If you can i would start the breastfeeding again (it might take sometime to get your milk up again) and food in between. My kids were all pretty hefty with mostly breastfeeding and snacks in between the first year. More breastfeeding i think.

Why are you attempting to wean at 5 months? At 8 months, the child should still be receiving most of her nutrients from breastmilk or formula.

Perhaps that's part of the problem. What does your physician say?
