Re: confused about supply....again...
What you describe sounds very normal. Feeling soft- and I mean really soft- is status quo for most moms with established milk supplies. The fluctuation in pump output is also normal. Most moms notice that they have the most milk in the early morning, since prolactin (the milk-producing hormone) levels usually peak at night, and the least milk in the afternoon/evening, when mom is tired and stressed and prolactin levels are low. When I was pumping, I could often get 5 oz in the morning and barely anything at all by late afternoon. As long as baby seems satisfied and is peeing/pooping appropriately, there's no reason to worry.
The behavior you noticed- I am willing to bet actual money that it is not a supply issue. Just a baby issue. I know you're used to 5 minute nursing sessions, but the occasional 30 minute session is totally normal. Especially when the baby is feeding in a slightly different position or is trying to get to sleep.
Trust yourself, mama! You're doing so well!
