Well, mum and DH said to give Jayden some formula to help him sleep better at night and to give me a rest. (I've been pretty exhausted from him waking constantly and me BF him back to sleep.) So i've been giving him a couple of bottles a day. He is so much better now! I never wanted to give him formula but if it helps me get some sleep so I can be a better mummy to him than thats ok. And i'm still BF him so.... But im kinda sad because he's not really interested in booby much anymore. With 2 bottles a day plus rice cereal with fruit/veges for breakfast, lunch, dinner and custard for dessert, he's a much happier baby and as long as he is still getting booby from me 2-3 times a day than i'm happy too. So basically i'm BF him at about 7:30am and then again at about 5:00pm, and sometimes another one at 11:00pm. The last 2 nights he's had a full bottle of formula at 12:00am and he has slept right through to 7:30am!! So formula isn't so bad for us afterall, but definately want to keep BF him a bit longer I like the bond and it's good for him.

On the ovulating front, nothing has happened yet. To be honest I was hoping that me feeding him less would have triggered the return of fertility. (That's not the reason i'm feeding him less though.) So no more spotting here and my temps are still low. No unusual symptoms either, so just waiting atm. Does anyone think it's likely for AF to return soon based on the circumstances?

Thanks gals

Good to hear your getting better sleep now! There is a chance that your fertility will return based on nursing less etc.... I hope to hear some good news coming from you soon enough.
