My son is almost 9 months and is starting to get teeth. I want to start breastfeeding only for nighttime feedings and naps. My question is, If I do this will my milk supply adjust on its own and stabilize so it doesn't dry up? Or will I have to keep pumping during the day to keep my milk supply up?

You will probably notice your milk supply is dropping. If you want to keep a good milk supply, pump during the day. Even then you might need to use herbs. I have low milk. I drink Breastea everyday to keep my milk supply going strong.

Hello and welcome to EHF !


I went through your query and i understand your concern.Milk supply would remain stable even if you feed part time. Your baby would get enough supply and be healthier.



Take care
