I think my milk may be slowly drying up. Or else Griffin is just a bottomless pit who can never be satiated. Or both.
Two nights ago I had to get up and feed him a bottle. And during the day he fusses while nursing and doesn't stop until he either falls asleep (rare) or gets a bottle.
I'm off the domperidone and I'm contemplating ordering more, although I don't know if that would do anything this time around. It's a rather expensive experiment with no guaranteed results.
So maybe this means Griffin and I will no longer be nursing... he is eating a fair amount of solids, oatmeal (2 tbsp) + a jar of food 3x a day. And he LOVES his solids.
Thinking about weaning makes me a little sad, but nowhere near as upset as I was when I stopped nursing Penelope at 4 weeks. I think I was depressed for a few weeks after we gave up nursing. We'll see how I feel when the possibility becomes a reality this time around. For now I'll nurse Griffin as much as I can and see where things go. But if he continues to be upset while nursing and continues to use me as a teething ring instead of a food source then we'll stop nursing sooner rather than later.
For all the struggles we've had, making it almost 6 months is a huge accomplishment. I'm proud of both of us.
