    Default Pumped milk lower in fat?

    I have a strange question. I usually pump in the morning after sleeping 6-8 hours. I will pump about 4 ounces, freeze it, and then nurse my baby. The 4 ounces that I pump looks a lot thinner (like it has less fat) and I wonder if when DH feeds it to her later if she will not feel as full (and be hungier sooner) since it doesn't have much hind milk in it?

    That makes sense.

    Is there a way to feed you baby first, then pump? I usually pump one side empty, then feed the other side to DD. That way both fore and hindmilk get into the baby and the bottle.
