My son was born May 13th so he is 10 days old and I have been breastfeeding him and starting when he was 3 days old I was told to supplement with formula for weight gain reasons. I got a pump in style advance yesterday and have been breastfeeding, then supplementing with 1 oz pumped milk and 1 oz formula after he nurses.
My question is when I pump, it doesn't seem to matter if I pump before he nurses or after I usually get right around 1 oz total from both sides. Shouldn't I be able to pump more than that at this point? I want to eliminate the formula and only breastfeed and supplement with pumped milk, but I know he won't be satisfied on only 1 oz pumped milk as he already acts hungry after nursing and taking his bottles. How much should I be able to pump right now? What can I do to increase my supply. I am so nervous that my supply is going to dry up, things are going better than my attempt with my first born, but I just don't know what to do to be able to breastfeed/pump exclusively without the use of formula. Please give me any advice you have, I truly appreciate it. ↓
