Afaik, in APA, it is generally acceptable to give a source only in the first mention per paragraph, as long as further references are still clearly from the same source. Example:

Author et al. (2009) found XXX . They also reported that YYY. Later on they conclude that ZZZ.

Now I wonder how one would add pages numbers for the specific claims. I would like to avoid something like the following:

Author et al. (2009) found XXX (p.23) . They also reported that YYY (Author et al., 2009, pp. 98-101). Later on they conclude that ZZZ (Author et al., 2009, p.139).

Is it acceptable to limit this to just the page numbers as long as the reference is still clear?

Author et al. (2009) found XXX (p.23) . They also reported that YYY (pp. 98-101). Later on they conclude that ZZZ (p.139).

If so, would such a solution also be acceptable when using parenthetical citations?
