Re: Catching OALD spray in bottle or pump after feeding?
When I had OS issues in the earlier weeks I pumped some "off the top" before nursing so that DD wouldn't get as much foremilk. One day I decided to save what I had pumped even though it was thin looking bc I HATE wasting breastmilk. (side story: one night I was pumping a little after a feeding and someone spilled some milk, which was probably less than an oz, and was in TEARS)
Well I left that bottle plus a "regular" pumped bottle with my mom one night when we went out and my mom said she plowed through the one bottle and was still hungry after. Sure enough she had had 4oz of foremilk and 2oz of the richer bm. At this time she only took a little over 3oz of ebm at any one time.
So in my experience the bottle of foremilk wasn't worth very much.
