My son is almost 8 months old. He eats 1/2 to 1 purée for breakfast and sometimes for dinner, and a few baby snackies while we eat lunch (all after bf first). He still bf throughout the day and sometimes in the night. I pretty much just pay attention to his cues and feed him when he is hungry. I had crazy milk production in the beginning (seriously could have fed triplets no problem! but it seems like my production has slowed a little but still just enough for what he needs. HOWEVER, something came up and I need to go help my best friend move out of her appartment tomorrow and have been trying to pump all day without success. I can maybe get 2 ounces at the most (that's from both sides combined!) and I have a really nice $300 medella pump. (My little guy is a formula snob too). Will NOT take it, but has taken breast milk in a bottle.
Is it true pumping becomes less efficient as time goes on? (I have heard that). This is the first child I have breastfed.
