My son was born 3 and 1/2 weeks early and we fought with jaundice. so they had me supplement formula afterfeeding so he got to where he was eating quite a bit of formula well he is 7 weeks now i want him to cut back on the formula and give him more breast milk and less formula but when i pump i only get like 1 1/2 oz. at a time throughout the day while i am at work there feels like there is more milk in there but it won't pump out what can i do to increase the amopunt that i ump out at work??? i Know if i pump while he is feeding on one side i can get a 1 1/2 oz. out of on side not both! it is very frustrating and when he is breastfeeding he never seems to be completely satisfied i think it is because he is so used to it being followed by a bottle that he expects it!
what should i do????????????help please!!!!!!!!!!

You also need to start pumping at work. You can't go 8 hours without pumping and expect to have a full supply to pump or nurse with. Can you arrange something with your employer? Pump in your car on your lunch break? You'll have to find a way to pump at least once, preferably 2-3 times.
