Re: Decreased output with each session
Welcome to the forum! What you're experiencing is quite normal. Levels of Prolactin- the milk-making hormone- fluctuate over the course of the day. They are often highest in the wee hours of the night and first thing in the morning, and then decrease as the day goes on, often reaching their low point in the afternoon-evening. This means that most moms have the most abundant milk in the morning, and the least in the later part of the day, when their babies often make up for the dip in supply by cluster feeding, making up for the smaller amount they get per nursing session by haing more sessions.
As long as your baby seems satisfied at the breast and you are able to pump enough for her needs over the course of the day, you don't need to worry. But if you find that you're not able to make those 2 things happen, you can add in pumping sessions and start thinking about whether or not you need to upgrade your pump.
