hind/for milk

Hi there. My baby has all symptoms of hind/fore milk issues..except no green diapers. Shes 9 weeks old..eats about 21oz a day but has gained 4 lbs since birth. She was 5.15 at birth and 9.15 at last apt... ( 3 wks early)
I only pump 4 times a day and get around 50 oz. I started at 8 and slowly dropped. My sessions are 30-40 minutes.. flows slows down but I've NEVER Seen a last drop...no matter how many times I pump. Is there really a last drop?

Also if you put milk in fridge, how much should be thin milk and how much should be fatty milk? 50/50 75/25?

And advice? Thanks!

Compressions is my middle name! You dump first two oz of every pump? I started doing this with just morning milk.

Also, if you are freezing the morning milk, you might save it for when you start solids.  You can mix the milk in with the baby food or cereal.  Then it probably won't be such a big deal to have a different balance.
