I was breastfeeding my son and supplementing with formula when needed. My son is eight months old and was eating cereal, fruits, and veggies.
At seven and a half months, he stopped nursing. I don't produce a lot anyways, but I thought he was getting enough. One day, my husband came home from work and I had just finished nursing. He said our son looked hungry. I told him I had just nursed, but he said to try a bottle anyways. My son ate eight ounces! He had only gained five ounces in six weeks, and is now 16 pounds at eight months.
For two weeks I have not nursed, and I am surprised that my breasts do not hurt at all. I was wondering if that is normal? I thought it would hurt and that I would need to take some dry-up pills or something...
So, is this normal or am I just lucky?
