I realize that this is my fourth baby I have breast fed. But this time it was so different. After she was born she was great at the breast. She gained like a champ, slept wonderfully and I had zero doubts the entire system was working. Now, we are sitting at almost 8 months and now I am starting to have doubts. Last night she was up every two hours and she was crazed and appeared to be hungry. So I nursed (like I always do at night). This morning I expected to feel a huge weight in her diaper from all the milk she consumed. But it was just a below normal diaper for her n the morning. That of course lead me to think supply issues. From her 4 month appointment (95% in weight) to her 6 month checkup she dropped down to the 75%. Ok, that in itself is not at all alarming, but I am looking at it as more of a piece to the puzzle. Or is there a major GS that happens about now? Maybe she is just hitting a more calorie intense time? She is eating solids (purees) but we are still in the beginning stage of that with her since she was just not at all ready until late last month.
Ok, I really don't know what my question is. I guess this is just more of a rant and a plee for sleep to my little lady. I fear my supply is dwindling and the end is near. I just don't want to think that.i might just be over analyzing the details from the last few days. Maybe I just need to chill and let this all work itself out.
