I have a 8 1/2 month old we had a supper rough start breast feeding and things finally got supper easy around 4-months!!!
My Question is how well established is my supply? I work 3 days a week and she drinks any where from 4 to 12 oz when I work ( I am away from her 4 to 8 hours) I only pump 4 to 6 oz in this time... I have been getting up in the middle of the night every night to pump to keep her on breast milk. ( she has been sleeping through the night from 2 months) So if I quit getting up in the middle of the night and give her a bottle of formula one or two times on the days I work how will this effect the rest of the days I am with here, I BF no bottle four days a week and she gets two small solids a day usually when I'm at work. I have tried pumping before I go to bed and when I wake on one side but I just don't get to much..... I have also started my period and it seems that my production slows alot during that times is that normal? Thanks for any help:)
