Re: Possible to maintain supply with only 1 breastfeed a day
As long as you continue to nurse, and the baby continues to do a decent job of removing whatever milk there is from the ready, you will maintain supply. If you're just nursing once per day, the supply is likely to be minimal- a couple of swallows, perhaps. But that's not nothing! And as milk dries up (through a process called mammary involution), it changes so that it contains more protein and more immune factors. Think of the milk that is produced at the end of lactation as nature's way of giving your child a final boost for his still-developing immune system!
Even if you completely lost supply, nursing would continue to be a useful mothering tool for getting your child down for sleep, and for soothing things like illness, skinned knees, and teething. I wouldn't give that tool up for anything!
