Hi, first time mom and first post to circle of moms:) My daughter is turning 10 months this sunday(jan 19). I have been BF her since birth, never any formula. She has recently became a lot more interested in solids, but i do not fill her up on them since BM is the most important source of nutrition till she is 1. And she is really into table food, doesn't really like her jar food. So i give her whatever we are having. And she nurses really well, great latch and she always seems satisfied after eating. She is very active and happy, hitting all her milestones. But my question is the last 2 days she hasn't seemed that interested in BF and my letdown has been a little slow too and she gets fussy when the letdown doesn't happen quick. She'll eat a few minutes then pull off, the go back then pull off etc. When the letdown comes she guzzles it down. I just don't know if she wants to stop BF or if her teeth on top coming in or nursing strike. It makes me nervous bc i want her to get all her nutrition. Could my supple be low too? Im trying not to stress it bc thats gonna affect my milk too.

Please any advice i would love so much, sorry for the long post. I just need some mom's advice to ease my head:):) thankkkk youu!!!

You are not BF as frequently and that is why its coming out slow. But she might be reaching a part where you should just try to get her on formula since she is 10 months.

Yes if your not bf consistently it slows the flow if you want your flow for her to flow get a pump and pump during the time she's not feeding on bm do consisted lay so your flow won't stop cause if its slowing down it will eventually stop good luck
