My son recently experienced a hind-milk deficiency issue, during which we started supplementing formula (because of weight loss). Now I can only (rarely) get him to eat from the breast, and the most he will take is about half of one side before screaming and thrashing hysterically. I eventually give him the bottle because the weightloss thing scared me. Now I'm afraid my milk might dry up before i can get him back on the breast.

Check out this article for information on how to get baby back to the breast. It seems as though baby is frustrated because the milk is not coming as fast and easily as the bottle. Start by nursing during sleepy times and BEFORE baby is very hungry. They tend to fight less during these times.
Is baby off of formula now? How did you know you have a 'hindmilk' deficiency? Were you feeding baby off of only one breast per feeding?
