    Default Is this normal?

    DD is almost 13 months. Is it normal that my breasts aren't feeling as full? she eats around 6 times a day (including night feedings). I assume if she wasn't getting enough I would know..I just thought that they would at least feel fuller before her normal feeding times.

    Yeah, because your supply has regulated. That is normal to occur before 13 months, too.

    Yes usually once you hit about 6 months you won't feel full anymore.

    Ok, thanks. How do I know if she's getting enough? How much should they be getting at this age?

    6 times a day is completely normal for 13 months.
