Re: i pump less than what baby drinks =(
Strongly agree with pps. Also, if your mother thinks she's still hungry bc she cries after the bottle, she might just be wanting to suck more. Your mother might offer her a little finger to suck on. At about that age, we started to have lots of crying unless nursing (i would let him suck for four-five hours in a row to avoid it). We found bouncing very helpful for soothing him. I would sit on an exercise ball or do deep squats, bouncing him, for whole afternoons, with breaks for nursing. Books on an mp3 player got me through, that and reading these forums! In short, crying at this age is normal and does not nec. mean hunger, though likely does mean she wants to suck and be held.
