So before I had the baby I decided to EP, I decided breast feeding was just not or me but I still wanted to provide the baby with my milk! I had a C-section but I still started pumping that same day. since i am not getting enough i have to supplement with formula. as of today baby is 7 days old and i am pumping every 2-3 hours and i get any where between 1/2oz to 1oz each time. She is drinking 2 1/2oz every 4 hrs, so i am still having to give her formula. I would like to eventually just give her breast milk but am starting to feel like that will never happen! So im just curious if the amount i am getting is a good amount for only being 7 days into pumping and if any one has advice because i would love to build up a supply but right now im basically pumping then feeding! I really want this to work out but am feeling a little discouraged.
