Hello there. I have a 21 week old daughter who is exclusively breastfed. Ever since she was about 3.5 months old, she has been extremely distractible during nursing. The only place she will get a good feeding is before or after her naps, laying down on our bed, curtains closed and with absolute quiet/white noise. It is rare that I can get her to nurse anywhere else. This isn't a problem, though. A little inconvenient, but not extremely so. However, I am wondering, could this arrangement lead to early weaning? I would like to breastfeed as long as possible. Her growth is awesome, but I am just looking towards the future when she will be going longer between naps. I don't want my milk supply to drop. I can sometimes get her to eat between naps but we must be lying down, in a quiet room, etc. Is this a phase that babies outgrow or is it permanent?
I own a hand pump but I typically don't pump since she's never really taken a bottle. We've never put an effort towards introducing one, however, since I stay at home and there's no need. Would you suggest pumping anyway?
