DD is 9, almost 10 weeks. Monday I worked 8 hours (was away from dd from 730am to 530pm) and she went to my in laws house. When I called on my lunch break at noon they tell me that she's had 3 bottles of breastmilk already and was still hungry so they made her a 4oz bottle of formula and she drank about 1.5oz and fell asleep. (Bottles varied in amounts from 2 to 3.5 ounces). They say they've tried rocking her, walking around with her, laying her down, playing with her, taking her outside, changing her diaper, etc. but she screams and cries until she gets another bottle. Since she was 3 days old I've had to supplement with formula because she dropped 18% of her body weight (was using an NG tube until I went back to work)and at her 1 month checkup her dr said I could lose the formula and supplement with pumped breastmilk but I haven't been able to pump that much because she nurses on demand and I haven't had the chance to pump. When I get there to pick her up they tell me they've used all the breast milk I've sent and used the last of the formula (which looked like it should have been enough to last through Tuesday as well).
Tuesday I was away from dd from 730 am to 630pm and she was with my mom. Basically my mom says the same thing. And the breastmilk amounts are a bit larger (between 3.5 and 5.5oz) because I sent what I pumped Monday at work.
Both of them tell me dd wants to eat all day and not much else stops her from crying.
I read about the one ounce an hour rule but how is that supposed to work when my dd wont stop screaming her head off until she gets a bottle?
Once I'm around her she nurses from me only and she sleeps through the night. I pump twice before I go to bed, set my alarm for 3 hours after I go to sleep and she nurses before I go to work. I'm taking fenugreek 3 times a day and eating oatmeal every morning. I tried mother's milk tea and it makes me sick. But I'm using these things in an effort to make more milk to replace the formula..
I'm not sure I'm going to be able to get away from formula and this bums me out. Sooo..what do I do..?
