BM while weaning still nutritious?

Sorry for posting in multiple sections...

Hi Ladies--

I'm in the process of weaning (and emotionally sad about it but circumstances tell me to stop). DD is close to 8mos and eating two good solid food meals plus drinking 25-27oz/BM per day.

I stopped taking my prenatal vitamins (ran out and didn't feel like refilling while I'm weaning), stopped eating oatmeal daily, stopped eating like I was preggers, and stopped drinking as much water. I haven't been sleeping or eating well due to other stresses going on right now. My milk is super clear and white when it was creamy and thick before.

Do I still feed this to DD? She's getting 2 bottles of formula (plus 3 BM) so I'm thinking she's getting enough nutrition. Thoughts?

Thanks!
Jenn

I sure hope it's still nutritious!
