    While at day care he eats four 4oz (stage 2) containers/jars of baby food. He does not eat that much for me on the weekends though. He might eat two containers/jars of baby food.

Maybe one of them will jump out at you and then you can work at getting those issues addressed and get him back to the breast.

    Oh, and the pump is nowhere near and indicator of your supply when breastfeeding. So if you are only pumping say 1oz, don't automatically assume that is all baby is getting at the breast. Our bodies can respond very poorly to the pump and it is not a good judge of production.
    Yes, he is teething, working on #8 in fact. Could be a growth spurt, Lord knows he needs it because every time we go to the doc for his check ups he tells me that my LO is in the lower percentile for his height. However, he says his weight is fine.

    I realize that the pump is not an indicator of my supply but what I look at the most and what concerns me the most is what transpires when I try to nurse him. He is obviously not satisfied. After a few minutes I no longer hear swallowing and I can tell he is still hungry.
