My baby is coming up for 6 months old and I am still breastfeeding her. In the last couple of weeks I have started to introduce some solids. She has some rice based cereal for breakfast which I have been able to express a couple of ounces or milk to mix with it, but I don't seem to be able to get more than a couple of ounces. What do I do when she needs more breakfast milk. I don't seem to have the volume! Can a 6 month old have full fat whole milk on their breakfast so long as they are still having breastmilk as their main drink? Also, is my supply low becuase I've not really expressed before? If i continue expressing at the same time each day will the volume eventually increase? Is there a best time of day to express? I am finding it quite stressful trying to fit in 10 minuits in the morning to express a couple of ounces. Any advice welcome. Thanks.
