    The best way to bring your milk fully in (and it's normal for it to be not all the way in yet) is to nurse your baby as frequently as she wants - or at least every 3 hours if she's sleepy and you're not sure. If you are "leaking" your milk is almost certainly coming in or in! So that's great!

    Stop the formula and just let baby nurse as long as she wants on the first side before switching to the second. If she still seems hungry, keep switching back and forth. This will help your supply. Your breasts never truly empty. She just might be fussy if she has to work harder for it, especially since she's probably used to the bottles by now.
