My 4-week old son was given the bottle at the hospital while I was recovering from a c-section...as a result, he's been used to feeding from the bottle. The LC at the hospital taught me to use the Supplemental nursing system along with a nipple shield to help him get adequate amounts of milk and formula (he is a 9-pounder and my milk took a while to come in).
When my baby was 3 weeks old, my period started and suddenly, the amount of milk I produced at each feeding went down - i was up to about 4 oz by week 3, then went down to less than 1 oz! My baby refused to feed at the breast since there wasn't much coming out (and the pedi said that the hormonal change may have changed the taste of the milk just a little).
Now I am producing about 2 oz of milk again and I pump after each feeding (he feeds from the bottle now). How can I get the amount of milk to go up?? pl help!!
