Re: Need advice
A "pump slump" when baby is around 8-9 months old is very normal for pumping moms. You may have to fit in another pumping session or lengthen what you are already doing. I was over-producing up until 9 months, then all of a sudden I was pumping almost exactly what he was drinking. If I had a bad pumping day I would throw in another session after DS went to bed to get another couple ounces.
And if you don't want to do solids at home yet, don't. If he is getting some at daycare then he is doing fine. Solids don't need to add much to his diet at this age anyway, as long as you keep nursing a bunch while you are together, and it sounds like you are. Solids are more about the experience not the calories right now.
Some moms have milk production fluctuations due to a return of fertility. I never did, so I will let someone else speak to that.
