Sorry i've been gone so long. My DD is now 6 months old and we've been breastfeeding since she was born. For the last month or two we started rice cereal and then two weeks ago we started sweet potatoes and then peas. I started pumping last week because:
1. I was engorged, which hasn't happened in a long time
2. We're moving and I want to store milk for the drive.

When I pumped I noticed the first once was almost all watery and then the milk came later at the end of the first ounce and then was white for the second and third ounce. I was wondering if it is like that because my milk supply is dropping since we eat solids twice a day or is it because it's been really hot and the body produces more water for the baby because of the heat (which would be really cool if that's the case. Another example of how perfect the body is)

Any suggestions, opinions, or ideas would be appreciated!

I pump regularly and usually it is watery-appearing at first...especially if I'm really full/engorged. I think it's probably just part of the foremilk/hindmilk.

I am constantly amazed at how perfect the whole breastfeeding concept is....!
