So my plan was to breast feed without any other supplements for like 6 months or until she starts getting teeth. Almost went a month, got past all the sore nipple stuff and was making enough for her to just eat and eat and pass out. And then she got her first growth spurt according to a nurse of mine. And she's been eating 8oz at a time on average, shes only a month and 4 days old and i feel like a horrible mom for needing to use formula... but honestly i can get up to 4 oz out of them if it has been a while and to except 8 every 4 hours is insane. I'm not sure if i'm noticing this or if i think i'm noticing it but i think that my supply has started getting low since shes been getting formula. And i've tried feeding her as much as possible and when shes asleep i'll pump just to keep things going but i'm not sure if its working. So i guess i just wanted to know if anyone has done anything or ate anything to help get things up?
