My baby is 10 days old. From the first day at hospital I was advised to top up feedings with formula, about 30 ml. I was told my milk wasn't coming yet and to offer the breast before the top up every time.
I later found out how bad this can be to establish breastfeeding and find myself in a vicious cycle. I am always offering the breast first and bb stays for hours if I let. He may fall asleep and then he cries. Sometimes I let him sleep and I'm not sure if he's starving or not. When he doesn't settle then I give the formula and feel depressed about it. I've been giving about 200ml in total a day. I'm not sure how much breast milk he's getting if any but he has lost only 30 grams in the past week which seems to be normal...
Please help. I'd like to fully breastfeed, how can it be possible.
