Re: Help! so torn :(
2-3 oz per breast? Wow! That's actually terrific supply. 6 week-old breastfed babies typically drink about 2, maybe 3 oz at the breast. I know that may seem low if you're accustomed to bottle-feeding and formula- but remember that bottle-fed, formula-fed babies typically eat much larger amounts than breastfed ones!
It sounds like you're really overwhelmed right now. Don't feel bad about caving in and offering a bottle of formula- but on the other hand, remember that the only way to not use formula is to just not use it. If your goal is to breastfeed exclusively, throw the formula out.
Can you get some help around the house? I know exactly how hard it can be to be alone with a demanding young child and a demanding newborn at the same time!
