anyone else? my daughter never seems to get enough when i breast feed her, and it makes us both frustrated. Eventually i give up and just give her formula. I know there are specific advantages to BF vs bottle feeding, but is it really that big of a deal? is it okay to do both? i feel like just giving up and strictly bottle feeding her. She's almost a month now.Answer Question

If you really want to breastfeed, stop giving up and giving formula. If you feel you absolutely have to give formula, then PUMP, PUMP, PUMP! It will help to increase your supply. Try things like lots of oatmeal, and lots of fluids. Try going to http://breastfeeding.hypermart.net/supply.html.
Good luck. And like humanitarian said, if it doesn't work, it doesn't work. Don't beat yourself up. Just knowing you gave it your all should be enough to know you're a great mom, doing a great job!
