Breast feeding mostly to only twice a day smoothly??

[deleted account] ( 3 moms have responded )

I have to start going to classes now and leaving my son with a sitter and I wont be there to breast feed everytime he wants it.. I don't produce enough when I pump to leave him... So that's not really an option.. But he's gotten use to only falling asleep while he's breastfeeding and I don't know how to go about changing that to only night time... Please help..

I had the same problem only to find that I was actually producing only the colostrum and not the milk... Have you had the doctor check this?... I would also personally advise you to switch to formula.

Pump what you can and supplement with formula. You really dont have a way to breast feed him so try the formula

When he is with someone besides you the way he falls asleep will change. My son was in daycare at 3 months old and he would only fall asleep nursing on me. At daycare she would put him down in his little bed and he would just fall asleep. it might take a little bit but it will be okay.
