I'll give a quick background of my kids and breastfeeding... My son was born 4lbs at 37 weeks (IUGR baby). When my milk came in, I was only able to get the milk out of one side. It wasn't that the milk wasn't in my other breast, it just didn't come out. It got extremely engorged (to the point of stretch marks) even after pumping and trying to get him to latch. Long story short, he never got the hang of breastfeeding and I ended up pumping for 3 months and supplementing with another mother's breast milk. He has always been tiny. He's now 4 yrs old and in the 10th percentile for weight.
My second baby girl was stillborn when I was 8 months pregnant with her. I ended up just wrapping my breasts and icing them so that I could make my milk dry up quickly. But once again my one side would leak, and nothing would come out of the other side. After I had her I went to a breast specialist to see why my one breast never released any of the milk inside. I had an ultrasound done and the doctor said that it was some sort of a congenital defect where the outlet for the milk to come out had never formed.
Fast forward to now with my 6 month and 2 week old baby girl. I've been exclusively feeding her from my one breast that works. I've always had to feed her about every 2 to 2 1/2 hours (probably because of storage capacity). She's in the 4th percentile for weight at 13.2 lbs, which I'm totally fine with. I'm only 5'2" and 100 lbs. She is staying on her growth curve so her pediatrician is fine with her growth and development too.
So, after this long story, I've started feeding her solids and she loves them. This should be a good thing right? I always feed them to her after I nurse her. The problem is, I think she would take a lot more than I offer. I give them to her twice a day (occasionally 3 times a day). But I never let her have more than 4-5 ounces of solids throughout the day. I've come a long way with breastfeeding and worked very hard to exclusively breastfeed (especially because I can only feed from one side). I don't want solids to make her start to wean herself or make my supply diminish... Should there be a cut off point for how much I offer her? I know she would take more because she will still open her mouth for more, and gets upset when I stop. At the same time it is kind of hard to hold back especially with a petite baby. Any help would be greatly appreciated
