So one question comes from a slight concern, the others are just "wonderings" I've developed.
The concern: I called our local hospital's breastfeeding help line to ask something, and the LC expressed surprise that my milk supply seems to be adequate despite hour long feedings on one breast. She said something about efficient suck and supply.
I thought that demand influences supply, and since he's demanding it 10+ hours a day, I figured my supply was great. (note: I've never noticed a short supply)
And now the wondering: From reading different things here, I've gotten the sense that as a baby grows, his intake amount stays relatively the same, but the nutrient/satiety level of the milk changes to meet his growth? Is this accurate? If so, that's awesome!
And the last questions: At night, my son sometimes sleeps 3 hours and sometimes up to 6 before wanting to eat again. Does my body just somehow "know" that his feeding is so irregular and my milk supply stays just fine?
