I combine feed my 4mo DS, who gets BM during the day and BM followed by formula at night. We have chosen to feed this way as after months of pumping, fenugreek, motilium, and a bout of mastitis, we just couldn't wean him off the formula top ups.
This combined feeding had been working really well until the last couple of weeks when he either gums the c@*p out of my nipples or just seems more interested in his surroundings than feeding. He only feeds for about 5-10 minutes. MCHN said this is a normal stage and to pump again to make sure my supply doesn't decrease. But now I can hardly pump anything. I could only ever pump about 40mls when I was on motilium but now I'm only getting about 10-15. Does this mean my supply has dropped again or is it just because I haven't pumped for awhile?
