Not sure what's going on... DS (12weeks) is tugging and getting frustrated at the breast the past few days. He recently found his hand and gnawing on it whenever he's not nursing or sleeping (so he might be teething, hunger for more).
He nurses every 2 hrs or so... and gets an extra 1.5oz - 2oz formula around 10:30, 3:00 and 7:00 for his big naps and nighttime. I don't want to give more formula as I'm trying to build my supply. I also pump when I can to stimulate ( as no actual milk is coming out). I'll offer him both breast and after the 2nd offering I'll get up and walk/rock him and he's fine gnawing at his hand for a bit then falls asleep. so not sure if he's hungry for more and I'm just distracting him.
This morning I skipped giving him the breast and pumped to get an idea how much he might be getting and got 3oz (1.5 oz from each breast), but noticed that the 1st letdown only produced 1 oz total and then 10 mins later had a 2nd let down which produced 2oz.
So I'm wondering if this is what's causing his fuss and how I can get more from the 1st letdown? Is there a way to get 2 letdowns closer together? And why theres more from the 2nd, seems odd?
