    I hear you, and things can get a little anxious when you are nursing sometimes. I've only been nursing 11 months, but I just know, and I hope this helps, that there are certain times in the day when if I pump, there seems to be less. Pumping, it has been said over and over again, is not a good gage of your milk supply. Since your baby has tended to do well these seven months, it would appear that your supply is fine to date. Relax a bit, and continue to nurse. Let the baby work the magic - - they are much better at keeping up supply than pumps!

    I pump every morning because LO will eat around 5 and when we wake up at 7 he is not usually hungry, anyways, I always have him suck for just a minute, just go get it going and then he is happy to get off and continue his morning playtime and I can pump about 3 oz a breast is less than 5 minutes. If he doesn't help me out I can barely get 2 oz from both combined.
