Ok- so my LO is 9 months
I have been nursing 4x per day for months
I plan to start to wean once she is 12 months
But, until then EBF.
She has never had a bottle and only breastfeeds.
I have a manual pump.
She is able to drink water and EBM out of a sippy cup.
This was my day for the last few months:
6:00 6:30BF and bed
Today at 10:30 she did not want to BF- so I tried to pump a little- with manual pump- did not get much and I was thinking she may have not been hungry yet-?
So- at 12:00 she had lunch and after that before nap at 1:30 I BF
Then, when she woke up and normally nurses- she did not want to- probally cause again she was not hungry cause she nursed later
I offered her to BF before dinner- and she did not want to
But, then after dinner she did-
So today she ONLY BF 3 times and not 4.
I am just worried my supply will go down if she nurses 3 times instead of 4. But, I do not think she is hungry for 4 anymore.
If I continue with three will it be ok?
I started to pump the other day at night so I can freeze some for sippy cups.
But, I only get like 2-3 oz at night since that was not really a feeding time.
