Hi - looking for some guidance and reassurance.
Brief history - exclusively breastfed baby girl since birth and she is now 6.5 months. Her last pedi appt she was 15 lbs. 26 in. (25-50% weight / 75-90% height). Started solids at 4 mos per pediatrician (oatmeal w/ breastmilk once a day). She is now eating oatmeal for bfast, pears for lunch and oatmeal and starting veggies at dinner.
She has always been a very efficient nurser...5 mins tops on one side and went two to three hours stretches.
Problem - I feel like my supply is dwindling and she might be self weaning. Her naps are non-existent (maybe 20-30 mins....at best) and she sleeps pretty well at night but still wakes up to nurse but does occassionally give me a 4 to 5 hour stretch at some point. She doesn't seem interested in nurseing...she will latch on for a while and pop right off at about 3 mins now. I used to have OALD and OS....now it seems like it takes forever for the letdown to come and I think that might be part of the problem. Also, her poops are becoming "weird"....less of the yellowy kind of poops from the beginning....I guess this is the solids, but seems like a lot less than before.
I guess I just want some reassurance that she is doing fine with supply....and that if she had more breastmilk she might nap better during the day. My boobs don't feel as full as before and that worries me. Any advice or encouragement is welcome and appreciated.
