I have been struggling with breastfeeding since my baby was born. I never really had a good supply. My baby was given formula at the hospital and I have been giving her formula top ups ever since due to static weight on breast alone.
The top-ups started quite small at 20 mls after each feed and continued that way until she was five weeks old. Then she seemed to need a lot more milk. I struggled to keep up by keeping her feeding as long as possible but one difficult weekend of her constantly on the breast, yet constantly not satisfied, I gave her a lot more formula and since then we have been doing much bigger formula to-ups and I seem to be gradually switching over to full formula.
I would like to keep some breastfeeds, but I now seem to have just a lot of watery foremilk, and she only takes that for those feeds. I am worried that this is upsetting her stomach and maybe it would be healthier for her to go over to full formula.
Has anyone else experienced this? Is the watery milk a sign of milk drying up?
Thanks for any advice
