Re: 6 ounces+, & nearly no hindmilk
Your milk is normal. Mama, honestly I think it sounds like you're psyching yourself out- "What if I'm in that strange, weird percentage of moms that doesn't make fatty milk?"... When I had problems with supply I found the idea that I might be one of those rare moms who couldn't make enough milk a perversely appealing possibility. It explained everything without me having to keep looking for a cause for what was going on, or a solution to the problem.
aprilsmagic really made a fantastic point about the hindmilk- that cream on the top of the bottle really is just the cream, the pure fat. There's fatty hindmilk underneath the cream, too.
Can you tell us more about what led your doctor to suggest supplementation? Maybe there is something going on there that got missed, something that wasn't about your milk.
