OK, my boys have already more than doubled their birth weight so I'm guessing that they're getting plenty of milk from me. They're beginning to sleep thru the night too. I am exclusively nursing and not pumping. During the day they will still nurse about every 1-2 1/2 hours. They're also teething which is why they want to nurse more often.
My problem is, when I try to pump, I can barely get 2 ounces out of each breast, even after 20+ mins of pumping! I just KNOW that they drink more than that! So I give them 4 oz of formula when the pumping doesn't go well. Then an hour later they will want to nurse again, and nurse plenty of milk from me. I think that they really don't feel "full" unless they bf.
I don't give them formula daily, just every couple of days when my mom will watch them so I can run errands. And it's only because the pumping doesn't go well. Why can't I pump? And how can I change this? I really need to change this, I'm going to melt from cabin fever!
