Can I bottle feed in the day and still br___t feed at night? Ever since I went back to work, my milk supply has diminished. I usually pump 2 bottles for dd buthte amount has gone done a little, and today I was able to pump only one bottle total. I'm worried I won't be able to pump milk anymore. If that does happen, will I still ba able to nurse her at night? She is only 3 and a half months and I am not ready to give up nursing her altogether.

probably but you would have to pump during the day still. i wanted to do half and half, but i ended up doing mostly pure b___stfeeding, it is a supply-demand thing,the more you nurse the better your supply of milk is. if you do nothing during the day and nurse at night, you probably won't have enough milk.

When I went back to work I did bottles during the day and b___st at nite for a few months. Ds weaned himself at 7 months b/c he was too interested in other things to b'feed anymore. But it did work out for me and my supply was ok. Your body will figure out the supply over time. even 3 months later my b___st STILL make milk!!!
