Keeping up supply when they're being iffy about feeding

DS, 6-and-a-bit months, has been a pain about feeding today, combination of teething and a cold but he does have these periodic anti-boob bouts. In itself I'm not worried about it, but I don't want my supply to dwindle if he keeps it up for two or three days, esp as he has two FFs a day. I've had to pump a couple of times today so that I didn't explode which does at least mean that I have 16oz in the freezer now, but will that be enough to keep things ticking over? The last time he did this he wasn't having FF or real food, and with both of those now in the picture I'm a bit more concerned this time. He still feeds a couple of times in the night - BFs - which should help?

Thanks.

Sounds like you are doing plenty - obviously if you are supplementing it'll reduce the amount of milk you have but your boobs catch up very quickly (ie within a couple of days) don't fret

Thanks. I think DS is taking matters into his own hands by feeding lots at night instead. Whoever said that formula was a magic sleep elixir was talking out of their bottom!
