Skim Milk?

Hi there, fellow pumptresses!

I don't have time for a lengthy introduction right now, but I've been at this for 9 weeks and 3 days - since little Emily was 2 days old.

I've been EPing for 13 months now and my milk has never had much fat in it. My LO has always gotten "skim" milk and she's a healthy happy 1 YO. I never took any supplements, only oatmeal. I didn't worry about it too much, I made sure I pumped to my last let down and that's about all I could do. I figured that was just what my body produced.

Your doing a great job, keep it up!

I had the same problem, the amount of fat in my milk is barely noticeable most of the time and my daughter often had green, runny poops which caused us to suspect a milk allergy at first.

Thanks so much for the reassurances!
