    Nursing 12 times a day or even a little more is within the range of normal. I am pretty sure all my kids nursed at least that often at this age, and I had no problems with low milk production. When you say baby sleeps through the night, how long is that usually? Are you pumping at night because you are feeling full, or to have expressed milk for a stash, or because you are concerned about milk production or some other reason? Has baby's gain been normal? Again that would be the most accurate measure to tell if something is wrong or not. Breast compressions may help with this. But it might be baby is getting all she wants from the one letdown. Search Jack Newman Breast Compressions for a good article on how and why to try these.

    Thanks for responding! She is eating pretty much every hour or hour and a half during the day. She sleeps through the night. I would say she eats about 12 times, plus a "snack" here and there. I usually pump once in the morning, and one long session at night. Some days I pump maybe once more in the morning after I feed her. I usually only get an ounce at a time. She doesn't eat for very long is the only thing I could think of. She nurses until I get a let down then when it slows down she gets agitated and latches and unlatches.

    I'd like in on this convo since I'm having the same issue! I had a pretty severe plugged duct a few weeks back and was able to massage it out. However, I noticed this white spot on the nipple (been having nipple pain for weeks now). I'm on antibiotics for mastitis (called the nurse last week) and I soak it in saline solution every night for a few minutes. Just this morning I looked up the white spot. It's been there for awhile but I didn't think it was related. Now I'm realizing it's probably a bleb. Wondering what measures I can take to work that out. Should I continue to soak and try the needle thing? God that sounds so awful... Thanks in advance!

    You are very welcome, thank you :) Yes... that is a lot of milk. I have a bit of storage right now just in case. Even though she hasn't taken a bottle since month 2... There is a SLIGHT chance I may be able to take her with. Finding a caregiver would be pretty difficult. I would have to check the on base daycare although they're typically very full and it takes awhile to get in. Shipping milk would be pretty expensive... What are the downfalls to using a mix of formula and breast milk?
