My 7 week old DD has a miserable time breastfeeding at night. During the day breastfeeding goes beautifully, and I feel like there is plenty of milk. When it gets to be about 8:00 at night she begins to cluster feed and all hell breaks loose. My breast feel very soft, and I feel like there is not enough milk to satisfy her. I know that you have a continual supply of milk and that you can never be "empty." I also know that some people can have slower let down at night. Even if there is milk, if she can't access it then we have a problem!
I feel that my DD is relatively patient, and she sucks and sucks and sucks but nothing comes out - no swallowing. Then she pulls off and screams. She is obviously hungry. My DH spends the next couple of hours distracting her, but she whimpers and makes hunger motions the entire time.
I REALLY don't want to give formula, but I don't won't my daughter to be miserable and hungry all night. I dread the evenings, and I can't imagine doing this for the next 10 months. I am definitely starting to feel inadequate.
