    Default unable to meet his demand

    I was pumping last week at daytime as i'll be back to work soon. The first 2 days i still able to meet bb demand. He took 4oz every 2.5 to 3 hr. But later on, the supply was dropping. Sometime i cant even get a drop, even though hand pump. I got very scare & start to burse him directly. Now he refuse to use bottle again & my supply don't seem to be enough when i start pumping. How?

    Your baby nursing directly will keep up your supply better than just pumping so make sure he is still on the breast as much as possible. Maybe pump in between to get your supply up it should get better the more you try. Pumping doesn't always show the true amount baby is getting.

    I wanted to pump in between his nursing but the problem is he's still nursing very frequent & my supply is just enuf only. Seldon got extra. If i pump, he'll bcome fussy when the flow is not that fast/lesser amount. I don't want him to get upset.

    How about if i just pump half oz if he doesn't feed after 2 hours? Usually he won't go longer than 2 hrs at daytime. But night time, yes, he feed 3-4 hrly.
