My baby is six months old and I was breastfeeding directly until I went back to work at three months.

Would it be ok if I asked a few questions?


What kind of pump?


Have you replaced the little white valves recently? They can develop microtears which can affect suction.


How much fenugreek? (It's a common mistake to underdose.)


Have you tried eating oatmeal? That helps some moms. http://www.kellymom.com/bf/supply/oatmeal.html


Is AF back by any chance?


On any medications or hormonal BCP?


Actually, your plan of offering solids in place of the 3rd bottle sounds awesome to me as long as that's your only solid meal and you're not giving tons of solids. Remember, at this point, solids should just be once a day and for learning to eat and exploring tastes.


You're doing awesome, mama!
