My son is 2 weeks 5 days old
the past few days, he seems to be fine at night but i dont think it takes as much to fill him up b4 he passes back out , but the last few days he eats a little bit and then just gets cranky and is on and off and on and off of me, and so today i made him a bottle of formula after feeding him and he ate 4 oz on top of whatever he got out of me, and seemed much more content. and i just took a shower and my boobs aint near as big as they were, and they havnt been painfully engorged either like they was. so am i running out? is there anything i can do to produce more? Granted I enjoy not being engorged anymore, but Im worried my lil' guy is hungry.

If you wish to breastfeed successfully drop those formula feedings and trust your body! What you need to watch for is wet diapers. Not feeling as full is not an indicator of lack of supply nor is how much you pump. Place baby to the breast everytime baby is hungry and all will be good. In those first few months baby will be attached constantly and this is normal and not an indicator of low supply (again refer to diaper count). You are doing great just drop that formula and you will be on your way to EBF bliss!
