I've been pumping exclusively for my DD for almost 7 months now. I went back to work full-time when she was four months. When she turned 6 months, I went through some very stressful things at work and my supply plummeted. Plus, I am a teacher and I have so many meetings during my planning periods that I've had to skip a pumping here and there.
Now she is getting about 50% bm and 50% formula. I've used all of my freezer stash that I had saved up, so now it is just day by day. Some days she gets more bm than others. Is she still getting the benefits of bm with only getting it 50% of the time?
It is a lot of work to pump and I still have to get up to do it in the middle of the night. Sometimes I wonder if the amount that she is getting is worth it. Has anybody heard anything on this topic?
