Its not too late, but it will take some work. I feel like it might be harder to get him to only nurse at specific times, rather then all the time. If he'll latch, put him to breast, and let him suckle. This will help supply. Invest in a supplemental nursing system, where he will be able to receive formula while nursing until your supply is up to par. Is there any reason why you would not want to go to full time nursing? Just curious. Try visiting your local La Leche League, they can also help you. Drink Mothers Milk Tea, eat oatmeal, maybe take fenugreek and blessed thistle, goats rue, these are all known to help supply. And plenty of water. I've got to get off to work, but I applaud you, and wish you the best. Feel free to ask me anything and I'll help you as best I can, or direct you to someone who can help.
