Hi ladies, I have 4.5 months cutie baby girl,first 2 months she is very good in feeding and my supply was good, but gradually my milk production slows down which makes us to introduce formula milk to her.
Initialy we gave her 1 to 2 bottle for a day, but as she grows her intake of formula milk increases to 3 to 4 bottles, I gave her breast feed during the nights as that time only I have milk in me, rest of the day she is depend on formula. I also tried pumping but this measure also failed.
Now the situation is like this she is not even lactating and want breast milk in night, I am feeling very guilty and helpless. I am having hypo thyroid, it's there for the past 5 years and still having, I am taking 100 mg of thyroxine everyday, also my blood sugar is bit higher.
Kindly advice me as everyday I am living with a guilt inside that I myself make my kid depend upon formula. Very Sony she will touch her 5. Months, is it fine if I start introducing solids to her.
Looking forward to hear from you ladies.
