Re: Not producing Hindmilk
Definitely sounds like it's in the normal zone. Yellow is good! I've seen my newborns' poops vary from the consistency of thin yogurt to watery cottage cheese, with the occasional watery diaper-buster.

But it gets better in time!
Can you have undersupply with a forceful let down?
Maybe in crazy land! The most fat I ever saw on top of my pumped milk was about 1/4 of the bottle. A thin layer is very normal.
As for the fat on top. my LO said it should be 50/50.
I'm with verity that the more often you can nurse the more weight your baby is likely to gain.
Keep us posted!
