More solids = less milk?
I only use my breastpump (baby has not wanted to nurse directly since she was a week old) and I am curious. Will my baby start drinking less milk the more she eats of solid food? I am trying to plan for the future. ( I do have a small stockpile of frozen milk in the freezer) I am having to pump every four hours to keep up with her eating habits! She drinks 6-8 ounces every four hours (except over night - she only drinks 6 ounces once during the night). I am exhausted from doing this five months and counting. I know breastfeeding is best for both of us. Please tell me there is a light at the end of the tunnel! I even wake up during the night to pump while she is still sleeping.
