My son is 14 weeks old. I demand feed him. I am with him full time 5 days a week and have at a baby sitter for 4 hours on the other two days. Until this week he has been exclusively on BM. This week my BM has been diminished and I can't figure out why. THe little guy was happy with alittle formula supplimentation, as I have gone through most of my frozen stores. This is not what I want, I want him exclusively on BM.
He is thriving, in the 90% for length and weight, I am feeding him full feedings every two hours. My ped. recommended giving him one to two bottles every day with a tablespoon of rice cereal to stretch his feedings a little bit and give him a little extra substance (the mash potato effect as he called it)
the past few mornings (which was usually my best pumping time) I have barely gotten 3 ozs. What can I do so my milk doesn't dry up and so I don't have to feed the little guy formula!!
