Breast feeding past 6 months

I have decided that I want to continue breastfeeding past 6 months. After a difficult start and two lots of thrush, I'm enjoying it now. (Plus I'm saving a tenner a week on formula smile )

I posted a while back about weaning while breastfeeding and I'm going to continue on demand (he feeds every 1 1/2 - 2hrs but could go longer if not with me/out and about) (and every 3-4 hrs a night)

my question is if I want the odd night out and don't take my pump would my supply be effected or is it pretty established?

How old is the baby? How established are the solids?

It should be pretty robust by now, enjoy your night out!

I agree with Mrscog, it should be well established by 6 months and a night out wouldn't make much difference.

Should be fine, although you may want to take a hand pump if you get uncomfortable? Best wishes with your feeding journey smile
