My son was supplemented with cows milk starting at 9 months on a recommendation from his pedi. You're not a bad mom. Ds is 4 and perfectly healthy. Very rarely gets sick.

And yet you have an internet connection and a computer, or possibly a smartphone......

Way to judge. I need Internet for my college classes that we have to pay out of pocket for.

 If you have to try rice or coconut milk over cows milk.  Running out happens. Who's giving him the bottles?

His dad or my mom gives the bottles to him. I will try those other milks. I've been watching him for any signs of it not settling right with his body and there doesn't seem to be any, but i feel terrible everytime he needs a bottle but he drank all the breastmilk. I don't get much with a pump anymore :(

I have it already but i don't get formula checks because i was breastfeeding. The checks are already printed out until his 1st birthday and then i will not have wic anymore. I called to make an appointment to tell them i need formula but they can't get me in for a few more weeks. ):

 Have you tried anything to help boost production?  Pumping can be tricky.It was hard for me to relax and letdown. Also it took a REALLY good pump before I saw any results.  I only had a hand pump for my first two and just thought I couldnt :(  Just remember that pumping results doesnt show how much baby is getting.
