My DD is 19 months and DH and I are planning to start ttc next month (yay!). DD is still having 3 breastfeeds a day, and I've been trying for months to get her to drink a bit of cow's milk so I can start reducing the b/f's, but she refuses to drink it, no matter what I do to it to make it tempting, so we're a bit stuck.
I don't think I'll have any trouble conceiving while b/f'ing as I've had regular periods since Nina was about 3 months old, but I'm a bit concerned about the demand on my body of feeding a toddler and growing a baby, and I know I definitely don't want to tandem feed Nina and the baby - that's great if you want to do it, but I know it's not for me.
So basically I'm really confused about it all - wondering if I should just refuse to give her the midday feed and see what happens, or keep being soft on her and keep crossing my fingers she'll drink some cow's milk ... and we don't want to put off ttc any longer as we're both as clucky as little fluffy hens! Any suggestions or stories would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! smile
