I didn't think anything of the fact that my breastmilk has very little fat until I was reading around and someone else was talking about being worried they had too much fat and it seems that everyone else has at least an inch of cream/fat separate out their stored milk, mine is more of a thin film, like a decimeter thick.
I always make sure to completely empty each breast when I pump and usually end up with 6-8oz bottles. It takes around thirty to forty minutes to empty both and the color of my milk shifts noticeably from a clearer watery to a full white, but the next morning when I go into the fridge to get the milk it has barely any fat separated.
I know that there isn't anything I can eat to improve this, but other than pumping until empty is there anything else I can do to up my fat content?
Do I really need to? I mean is high fat that important?
