I know I've posted a few times about low supply already but this time I'm really wondering. I know to watch diaper output and weight gain and they seem to be appropriate so far. Although yesterday after 12 hours of sleep she had only had a slightly wet diaper. And her next diaper was wet but not soaking and that was a few hours later. So her next feed I felt the need to give her a bottle to I knew how much she was getting and then I pumped. I got my usual 4 oz. I breastfed the next few feeds but decided to give her a bottle at bedtime which was 9PM. I pumped at that time and I got probably around 3 oz. She doesn't usually eat after that so I pumped again at 12 to try to have a supply for today to use with her rice cereal. I only got about 2.5 oz.
I know pump output is not always a good indicator of what the baby is getting when she breastfeeds, but I guess it's a little disconcerning that my pump output was less than usual. Do you think the output at 12PM was because I have not pumped or fed at this time for several weeks so I was just not making much at that time? This morning I felt fuller but not engorged. And so far today her wet diapers have been better.
So what do you guys think? Should I pump more often? When I go to work which is 2-3 times a week, I pump 3 times a day. When I'm not working I try to EBF.
