 . I was just wondering if its normal to have days where your just lacking in the milk department? My daughter has been acting crazy hungry today.. and the last 8 hours that ive tried to feed her, i havnt let down ( i know this isnt always nessisary, but for me, every time i have had a full satisfying nursing session with my daughter, i have let down) and it seems by her frustration she is getting very little ...i even offered her formula!!! thats how bad it got, but she gagged.. rightlyfully so, its nasty.. but her diaper counts were even low today.. she has hardly slept at all as well.. its like she falls asleep and is then startled awake by hunger and cries.. Yesterday was just fine! Breastfeeding can be so stressful!

How old is she?  This sounds like textbook growth spurt behavior.  Put baby to breast and leave her there.  Fussing at the breast tells your body to produce more milk.

I would guess that your milk is fine, but maybe something is just bugging her today.  Mine has gone through days like that, and so far things have always picked right back up the next day.  An off day here and there won't hurt anything.

Sounds like your mlk supply is settling, normal between 8 and 10 weeks.  Its frustraing just like a growth spurt.

As long as 6 diapers in a day baby is fine even if that is lower than normal for her
