i want to ebf so bad. but it has been so much harder than i thought it would be! i have overcame latching issues, using and getting off nipple shield and breastfed with a milk blister. but my newborn seems to always be hungry when done feeding and my breasts are empty, he gets fussy while on the breast and i can tell there is nothing else coming out. he is one month and since he was born his feedings have been more than an hr and a half because he howls when taken off the breast. my pediatrician said he is using me as a pacifier but i dont think that is true. i have tried soothing him, giving him a paci and putting him in his swing. he just cries and puts his fists in his mouth. so of course, i put him back to nursing and he seems content. so am i not producing enough milk? this cant be a growth spurt since it has been happening since he was born. i know it could affect my supply but i have given him 2 oz of formula a couple times after nursing. i once gave him 4 oz formula instead of nursing to try to give my breasts a break. and he was still hungry! he ended up eating 5.5 oz of formula. I feel like my breasts never get a chance to fill up because he is constantly nursing. its as if any time he is awake he is hungry. If he could go a little bit between feedings my breasts would fill up and he would get full and be satisfied right? when he is so upset, and nursing calms him down right away i feel like it is the right thing to do. it is just so time consuming. I love my lo and want to feed on demand and will continue to do so. just wondering if anyone is going through same thing, and if it gets better. I go back to work in a week! i hope i can pump enough to satisfy him while i am at work.
