Hi ladies, I hope that some of you can help me here.
My little boy has his last feed at night around 7ish and sleeps through so he isn't having his next feed until morning. However, when morning comes, I am becoming engorged and leaking everywhere (from the breast that he is due a feed on) even when wearing 3 breast pads on each boob!!!
How can I avoid this? I need advice! I'm sick of waking with really sore boobs in the morning and milk all over the show!
Last time - with DD - i breastfed until she was 11.5 months. I went back to work at 9 months, so i just cut out the two daytime feeds and gave formula then instead. She was on 4 milk feeds a day by this point - 7, 11, 3 & 7.
This time i hope i can go to a year again and i'll see what happens if i go back to work again.
Well Drake is my first and to be honest I dont really know how to work it (or more importantly how it works ). For example I want to BF for 6 months at least and start weaning then, but do I use "Follow on milk" or something up until 12 months where he wont need to be fed on the milk anymore? Im so confused with it all!
I originally planned to breastfeed until 6 months with my first, but by the time it got to that point i was like, hang on... It took so long to get this established, it's easy, it's free... Why would i start BUYING formula!! So i carried on.
But yeah, if you go to formula before a year old you need follow on milk. We used SMA Gold, but there are others. Cows milk from one year, but DD was a fussy eater at that stage so she was on one year plus formula for a while cause of the extra vitamins in it.
