i know there were some comments about this but can a LLLeader clarify...
is it really a known fact that when periods return, the milk ss decreases?
my period just returned at 6 mos and i noticed my boy started feeding more times per day.
so far i've been demanding feeding for the past 3 months and restarted pumping to get milk for his cereal and night feeds. it has been so pathetic i'm wondering just how much my boy is drinking?!!
at best, if he hasn't fed for a few hours, i'll pump one side and yield no more than 1-1/2 to 2 oz on one side. is that ALL he's drinking every 2 to 3 hours???? is that a tad little for a 7 mo old? he demand feeds every 2 to 3 hours for 5 min one side. i get the feeling he's drinking no more than 2 oz each time. now that i started pumping (3x a day, morning, afternoon and night 6 hours or so apart), sometimes he feeds 1 hour or so after a pump, and gets frustrated becos there's little milk left for him!
am i doing the right thing?
