Perhaps what I need is just some reassurance so I thought I'd come here because you ladies are great!
My LO is almost 6 mon old. She's been EBF until I returned to work when she was 3 mon old. Up until recently, I've been able to get 4 oz or more everytime I pumped when I was at work and if I gave her a bottle. Recently, its' been dipping slightly where I sometimes only get 3-3.5 oz. So is my supply decreasing or am I getting used to the pump? Also, she now takes 5 oz with every bottle so I pump an extra time after she eats for the last time (so around 10PM) at which time I get about 2-2.5 oz and I know it's normal to have less at night.
When I'm home, I breastfeed her. She appears to be satisfied when she pulls off and she usually only does one breast per feed. And she still seems to have adequate number of wet diapers. We just happened to have to take her to the pediatrician to have her skin evaluated and she had gained 5 oz in two weeks...is that adequate for a breastfed baby at this age?
I'm going to try changing the membranes to see if it makes any difference. Do you think my baby is getting enough when I just breastfeed her?
Thanks in advance
