I leave the house when the baby is being put to bed at night typically to do schoolwork once my husband is home. Anyhow, my husband has been feeding our 3 month old 7 - 10 ounces the last few nights right before bed. It was about 4 oz he would feed our baby only a week ago. Our 3 month old has also been acting much hungrier during the day the last couple of days. Is there any reason I should be concerned about my milk supply? (i breastfeeding but when I'm gone the baby is typically fed formula) Thanks for your help!Answer Question

3 months is time for a growth spurt so baby should be eating more. Are you pumping during the feeding you are missing? If you are not it is a very slippery slope especially at this point. Right now your body needs to produce more milk for your ever growing precious one and when you miss a feeding you are not giving your body the much needed signal to produce milk which will assuredly lessen your milk production leading to a lessening supply. If you want to keep up with your LO make sure to pump for every feeding you miss or your supply will go down. You obviously have the ability to make enough for baby so keep up with expressing milk at EVERY feeding or you may end up sliding down that slippery slope. Good Luck!!
