Re: help with 2 day old....
Congrats on your new baby!!
It is totally normal for your milk to have not come in yet. Mine came in on day 4 or 5. Rather than timing your feedings and the spaces between them, you might try putting your baby to your breast whenever he gives you hunger cues. Rooting, making sucking faces, putting his hands to his mouth, etc are all good cues that your baby wants to nurse.
I know it is really hard in the beginning to have faith in your body and trust that it is doing the right thing and feeding your baby, but you ARE!! There should be no need to supplement with formula this early, since your baby's tummy is so small (the size of a grape!) and the colostrum should be enough. I would avoid supplementing more, as it will definitely have an effect on your milk supply if you continue. At this point baby will suck on a bottle whether he is hungry or not so if you put him to your breast instead of a bottle it will affect both your supply and his ability to latch properly.
Just remember: The more baby sucks the more messages your body recieves that it's milk-making time!.
