Our expert says:
I'm definitely NOT saying your little boy will become Bipolar. EVERY little boy or girl born has some slight risk of developing almost any disorder. If one's mom or dad has Bipolar disorder, one's risk of developing that particular disorder is a bit hight. If both parents already have developed Bipolar Disorder, the risk would be a bit higher again.
If you might be having a bipolar relapse, of a depresion or hypomanic type, do see your shrink again for a re-assessment and an exploration of treatment options. But it sounds as though the problem or concern you have now is more within the relationship than due to the biochemistry of bipolar disorder, so seeing a counsellor, perhaps of the CBT format, might help more, while resuming appropriate medication as mood-stabilizer.
I agree with felicity. If the meds are necessary, then go back on them ans switch to bottle feding, which will not cause any problems for the child. And your shrink, and mabe SADAG could help your bf, if you decide to continue to have him around, understand your disorder better
