Our breastfeeding journey has lasted a solid eight months. My goal was the recommended six months, and we roughed it through the first couple difficult months and made it all this way.
I’ve been pumping 3x daily (every 2-2.5 hours) and gradually my pumps have gotten smaller and smaller. I think the main culprits are the introduction to solids as well as living that bottle life.
Anyway I’m lucky if I pump even half of what I FEEL that archer needs. In pumping around 6-7 oz total for the day and that’s just not near enough. So I’m continuing to supplement (because solids cannot be a replacement for milk) and he’s still fat and sassy .
This morning my milk wouldn’t let down when I was trying to nurse Archer, and I think that was one of many signs that this is the beginning of the end of our journey.
I have tried ways to increase supply, I’m sure they work , but for some reason I’m not seeing results. So please hold any comments on the million things I could do to increase it. Breastfeeding has been a beautiful experience, and I won’t stop until I’m completely dry, BUT im also not willing to stress myself, archer or Cody out with constantly worrying about supply issues.
As travelfarlittleone says, I choose love, whether that’s formula or breastmilk. I love my baby and I keep him healthy and happy and that’s what matters.

This past weekend was intense. Archer had his first week of daycare which brought on a rough cold as well as pink eye :-/.
Then of course Cody and I get colds (thank gosh they didn’t last too long). Archer couldn’t sleep in his crib because he couldn’t really breathe laying down so he was sleeping on our chests while we took turns sitting up with him. Last night he slept 1.5 hours in his crib for the first time in four nights, then his nose and coughing was keeping him up so we brought him with us again .
Yesterday was a lot better and we were able to make it out to a small town’s pumpkin festival ! Archer wasn’t able to really do much but he sure loves to people watch. I took way too many pictures , but they’re all too cute !!!
Any advice for sick babes? We used saline spray, Vicks baby rub, hot showers to clear his sinuses , etc! I really hope he’s able to sleep in his crib tonight !
