My breast is sore and someone mentioned my milk could be drying up? I still pump but only get 2-3 oz each time since my baby eats solids now.

In brief: Supply and demand
As your baby nurses less at breast, your milk supply will decrease accordingly, unless you pump more frequently to maintain supply.
Your breasts being sore could be from engorgement as your baby feeds less often. Contact your OB and discuss your concerns.
