is it possible to make too much fatty milk? or not enough foremilk? a weird thing happened when i pumped last; after the milk seperated in the fridge, it was mostly fat! and i only pumped almost 2 oz (i do not work very well with this pump). normally there's a thin layer of fat but this time it was just about all fatty!

I pumped while working full time for ~9 months and my milk had different levels of fat in it depending on time of day, how engorged/empty I was, how long I pumped, how many letdowns, etc. Totally normal, but it is interesting how it changes so much over just a days time.

thanks! do you happen to know...when you have multiple letdowns, does that give more fat? i have searched and can't find the answer. my daughter will sometimes make me have 3-4 letdowns during a nap. i don't know if that starts it all over or is mostly fat each time.
