I am needing some advice please! My son is almost 11 months and is struggling with his teeth. Since 7 months and 3 weeks we have had no full nights sleep due to this. Also a few weeks ago he had a chest infection and the only thing that will placate him is a feed. I love you my son but I don't think I can carry on with breastfeeding much longer. I am in agony as my disability leaves me with indescribable pain and I am ready to go back to my pain relief. I stopped using it once I found out that I was pregnant and think I have done a good job so far but I am struggling daily to care for my home and my other children. My son will not have formula or cows milk. He will only take a little water at meal times and I am unsure of what is best to do. He eats a variety of food types and is hungry often. He is a good weight and great developmentally. I feel selfish wanting to stop breastfeeding but I feel I have to think of my own health and happiness now. Any advice would be great thanks.
