my son will be 3 week in 2 days and I have bf since birth. Since last week he started eating every 30-45 mins and would just stay on my breast for hour or hours when Id take him away to put him down hed just cry and cry. As of 4pmyesterday to 1am this morning I couldnt get him away from my breasts without crying. I tried pumping to get more milk and none. So I decided to try and give him formula to see if he was actually really hungry and so be it he was starving and scarfed 3 oz down and went out for 2 hours!!!! so i continued with that through the night. I know nothing about formula feeding and need help! this morning I pumped and mixed 2oz breast milk and 2 oz formula and he ate about 3 oz and is sleeping! am i bad for doing this! i feel funny and guilty but he was hungry and I couldnt give him milk from my breasts, i cried bc he was so upset for so long and hungry.Answer Question

No you are not. I understand that. I had trouble getting started with both of my little ones. If you want to continue breastfeeding drink plenty and try some of the Mothers Milk stuff, it really helped a friend. Also the regular pill almost dried me up and and when I had PPD it got really bad at one point and started drying me up.
If not then keep up with the formula, he seems to being doing fine with it.
