    Default 6.5 months and solids

    Well we started my son on solids a few weeks back and he is taking them twice a day. He has never slept very well but just this weekend we started giving him a paci when he woke instead of nursing and he would go right back out! WOOHOO finally sleep for me. I work full time and pump for him. Well that is a little background.

    To my question, he nurses first thing in the morning, goes to daycare and has morning solids, takes two 7 oz bottles of bm at daycare, and comes home nurses for a bit and eats evening solids, then nurses before bed. I pump twice at work for him. My supply has lowered since we stopped giving him those night feedings. I have never had a problem producing enough for him but I am worried now. Is this the beginning of the end for me breastfeeding? I really don't have any more time to pump and don't want to have to get up at night to do it either. Any suggestions.

    My baby is the same age and on a VERY similar schedule to yours. As long as you can make the 2 bottles for Daycare (can you still?) I woudln't worry about it.

    I consider myself lucky as well to have never had a problem with supply, but even I have days where it seems slightly off. A think a bit of variation is normal once you're doing solids.

    Good Luck!
