Your baby is used to feeding often at night. This will be difficult to stop even if you change to a formula as he will simply continue to demand frequent bottle feeds instead. The stimulus for breastmilk production is your baby's sucking on your breast. If he stops breastfeeding your milk production will stop.The best way to do this is to do it slowly, stopping one or two breast feeds per day each week and substituting with a bottle instead until he is only on bottle feeds.You can get more advice on our Breastfeeding Forum on Health24.
