Hi. My child just turned 7 months. I have noticed that I produce much less milk than before. She's eating cereal and some pureed veggies in addition to br___tmilk. Is it normal for br___ts to leak less often, and take some time to let down milk?

Yes. It's probably not that you are producing less milk, but that your body has adjusted and is now balancing it better. I was very grateful when that happened -- I didn't have a wet shirt all the time :) And your strong let-down reflex lessens up over time, so that tingly feeling is probably not as strong or as noticeable. If you are worried about not having enough, nurse before feeding solids so your baby gets more milk and less food. My DS was still nursing, even with solids, about every 3 hours, so I knew he was getting enough. Sounds like you are doing just fine though :)
