Breastfeeding my 3 month old during the daytime is the highlight of my day, a real joy. But once the evening comes, say 5pm, it's awful. It seems she just can't get full and I'm literary nursing her for hours. Not a good look when I'm trying to finish housework and made dinner. So I give up, sort to speak, and give her a bottle. But it's after hours of trying to breastfeed, usually after the older kids go to bed. I feel bad, but I swear it's the only thing that works. And she usually goes to sleep right afterwards and sleep throughout the night. Then by morning, I'm full again and we have a wonderful day of sastifying feedings. That is until 5pm and the cycle starts again. I know from experience giving 1 bottle a day leads to 2 and so on and next thing you know yor're not nursing anymore period so I want to prevent that. But what do I do when she sucks and absolutely nothing comes out? Do I need suppliments?
