I need some help!
My little man will be 2 weeks old tomorrow. He's now up to about 2.5-3oz per feeding, I have been pumping just because my body can't keep up with him. Over the last 3 days his feedings have increased so quickly! It's frustrating because I wanted to ONLY breastfeed but I've already found myself having to supplement with formula because I'll go to pump and I'll only get about 2oz total. The dr last week said he's growing perfect & nothing to worrry about since he's already more than his birth weight. He will latch fine I've just been pumping lately to try to produce more, so every hour and a half I'll pump so after a few hours he has enough for a feeding. So he will take breast & bottle no problem. I'm just trying to do whatever I can to increase my supply for him, it's frustrating that I'll feed him boob and he gets so upset that he's still hungry & I have nothing left to give him. I've been trying everything, I'm just irritated because the last thing I wanted to do was give him formula I really wanted to be able to breastfeed and it was going so well until these last 3 days. (Nothing wrong with formula, my 2 oldest were only on formula) I just had a goal with this baby to do breastfeeding since he will probably be our last. Please any suggestions, is this normal? What can I do? I even tried power pumping yesterday, every 45 min I was pumping for a little while over the course of a few hours just to see if that would bump up my supply. I feel like my body is doing something wrong that I can't produce enough for him :( I hope I'm not the only one who has had this!
