My LO is almost 4 moths old, we are exclusively breastfeeding, seeing as I am a stay at home mom for the first time. I have noticed him in it a small growth spurt, nursing every couple hours again, and I am able to keep up with him, he is gaining weight like he should (currently 14lbs). What I want to know is, once we get through this spurt, and my supply is up to where to where it is meeting his demands, and he goes back to nursing every few hours, will the milk supply decrease again?
I have been pumping after he nurses to make sure both breasts are completely drained, and he is doing a pretty good job of it. I am getting very little when I pump. He nurses for about 5-10 min on each side. I will say one side produces double what the other side does, but he is very good at nursing, so I know he is mostly draining the breast at each feeding.
Thanks for the information!
