    Default Having trouble expressing for my 8 Month old...

    I have been breastfeeding since birth and used to be able to pump 100ml +. My son is now 8 months old, has been sleeping through the night for months and has 4 breastfeeds each day along with solids 4 times a day. I haven't tried expressing for months and thought I would this morning but have only managed to pump about 20ml. My son is a very happy and active baby, but now I'm a little concerned about my supply? Any advice?

    He's a small baby and only around the 6-7 kg mark. He continues to go up on the charts but is still below the 3rd percentile. But like I said he is such a happy baby, very active, has been crawling for a few months, looks healthy, doesn't look drawn or tired and eats well. He's just petite and he doesn't necessarily look skinny but looks like he's younger then 8 months. The community nurses are not very helpful and are somewhat discouraging, they think my baby has gotten used to not having enough to drink! But I'm sure if he was still hungry he would wake during the night?

    Thanks. I'm encouraged to hear that there are other small children... Who are perfectly healthy.
