our DS is 5mo and i have enjoyed every minute of EBF. due to a few recent circumstances, we have decided to introduce solids to him. he's LOVING it and it seems to be helping where we need it to. however, ive never had to go thru this 'decreasing supply' thing and i'm a little worried i'll do something wrong. we only give DS one 'meal' of solids/day in the evening, so it's not a drastic thing or anything, but not sure what to do - do i pump since i'm so full from missing a feeding, or do i just give it a few days so that things will regulate on their own?
also, i hope i'm not being too candid, but my monthly cycle has been nowhere to be found since DS was born and my doctor says that once i drop to about 3 feedings/day, it should return. any help on that subject? i had some bleeding issues have having DS and am just a little worried about any long-term effects it might have had on me since i havent had my cycle return yet.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP! MUCH APPRECIATED!
