OK. So I have dealt with oversupply and OLD with all 3 of my kids. But I've really worked hard this time to keep the supply in check and very rarely get engorged.
With each of my kids, though, I notice that at around 6 mos, my breast milk changes and becomes very very watery. This time around it is ridiculous! It seriously looks like coconut water. When I pump, that watery consistency comes out until the very end when I small amount of white milk will come out. If I leave the bottle in the fridge to settle out - there is only the tiniest amount of fat that settles on the top. This can't be normal can it?
My daughter is very small. She is only in the 25th percentile for weight and the 1st percentile for height. My older two kids have always been in the 50th percentile, so this worries me. She has been EBF.
I eat very healthy - I have to limit dairy and soy because my daughter is MSPI/refluxy but I eat very healthy otherwise. No processed foods and lots of organic fruit/veg. I also try to consume at least 2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil and half an avocado per day. So I should be getting plenty of fat. Is it possible for some women to just not produce healthy breast milk??
Thanks so much ladies....
