Hello all! I posted this in the Working and Breastfeeding forum, but I'm hoping to get more insight by posting here as well.
Baby boy is 8 months old. Recently I've noticed my supply dwindling a bit while pumping at work. My little guy is really enjoying his solids now, so I'm wondering if that's why? Here is our sample schedule:
6:30a - nursing
8a - solids
9:30a - bottle of breastmilk (at daycare)
noon - solids
1:30p - bottle of breastmilk (at daycare)
5p - solids
6:30p - nursing
10p - dreamfeed
(perhaps another nighttime nursing session if he wakes up)
Does this sound like an ok schedule for an 8 1/2 month old?
I used to pump 14 oz at work, in two pumping sessions. Recently I've been getting 8-9 oz (yesterday I only got 7!). Little man has also not been finishing his bottles at daycare (I was sending two 6.5 oz bottles, I'm now only sending two 4.5 oz bottles, and sometimes he won't finish the second one).
Do I need to be concerned? Or is this ok and normal? He's gaining weight appropriately, so that's not a concern. I just want to make sure my supply doesn't diminish completely, as I really want to nurse him up to or past his one year birthday.
Thank you for any input/advice!
