My baby is 7 weeks old now. I dont know if this is normal but I think my milk supply is either the same or less. Unfortunately, I had to give him bottle 2weeks ago because I had a painful pimple right next to my nipple which I had to even take antibiotics. My md suggested not to give him that breast and supplement with with pumped milk or formula. It broke my heart!!!
Now my breast is fine but I dont think I have enough; specially At night!!.
Here its my scheduled:
6 am: Breastfeed
9am: pump 3-4 onz and store
4: BF and I also pump like 1 onz to store
12: BF and suplement with breast milk I pumped in the morning because he gets really desperate with my breast.
Then I bf him when he wakes up in the middle of the night.
What really confuses me is at night that he gets really desperate with my breast and keep sucking really hard and crying to the point that it hurts. I dont think is gas because I give him Mylicon and the behavior does not change.
Please Help I dont want to give him Formula however that though has cross my mind every night he gets like that. He only get quiet and go back to sleep once I supplemented with my 3-4 onz of milk or formula.
