Hi I have been breastfeeding for 8 months and half now. I am so proud to have made it this far without supplementing.

It looks as my dd might need a little supplementing here and there. I am not going to stop breastfeeding but maybe giver her 1-3 bottles of formula throughout the day after nursing.

So how did you know you had to supplement?

Thank you JMC1988 for the beautiful siggy!

My name is Ashleigh and I have a daughter named Kyleigh. She is 9 months old.

I think it's great that you have made it this far! That's a big achievement!

I knew it was time to supplement with Kyleigh when she wouldn't breastfeed anymore. After 4-5 months of breastfeeding, we had some things going on and she refused to take the breast anymore. Breastfeeding had been a struggle since day one, but I was glad that we were able to do it for as long as we could. After that time, I began to pump as much as I could for her and supplement with however much I needed to.
