    Question someone please help me!

    I had my son about 2 weeks ago. I was bf him so well.. we supplemented, but honestly he didnt care if we gave him a bottle or not. Well, due to sleeping issues (he would be so sleepy he'd only eat on one side for 10 minutes and not want to eat anymore, wake up a hour later and want to eat again, it was driving me nuts) and me getting worried about him not getting enough to eat, I decided to stop bf him and go with formula. I miss bf him so badly! Can I still try to get him back to bf? He has only been on formula for 2 days..
    I tried to bf him yesterday but I was so engorged that he kept choking on my milk
    How do I get the milk out so he can eat again? I had a breast pump (that didnt work for crap) and now I lost a piece so I cant even use that! I feel so bad.. I have cried to my husband everyday since and I just can not stop feeling so guilty and let down.. I want to feed him again!
    Is it possible? What can I do!? Please someone help me.

    You can express some milk by hand before offering the breast. Also, you can wait for your milk to let down, then express into a wash cloth and allow him to eat after the spray stops.

    It's not too late at all. It's supply and demand, empty the breast by nursing and pumping and your body will start to make more.
