Re: Any advice for reestablishing supply after supplementing
Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new baby!
This link gives excellent guidance on weaning from formula supplements: http://kellymom.com/bf/got-milk/basi...rease-formula/
Basically, you want to gradually decrease the size of those supplemental bottles while increasing the amount you are nursing and pumping. That increase in stimulation will result in better supply, and eventually allow you to fully drop the formula.
It's terrific that your baby is an enthusiastic nurser, but less good that she is a sleepy one. A lot of babies who get their nutritional needs met primarily by formula become lazy at the breast; why bother to nurse efficiently if the bottle meets most of your needs? So this would be a good time to start decreasing the size of the bottles you are offering. Instead of giving her 4 oz of formula at a time, how about nursing her, giving her 2 oz of formula or pumped milk, then putting her back on the breast, and finally giving her another 1-2 oz if she still seems hungry? That way she's nursing several times instead of just once, and a lot of that time she's still pretty hungry, which hopefully will provide more incentive for enthusiastic nursing. But even if she's nursing gently (i.e. "just" comfort sucking), it's good for supply.
It's not at all weird that your baby seems to get more milk out of the breast than the pump does. Babies tend to be much better at draining the breast than even the best pump.
