How do you know when you have to supplement? Are they irritable and fussy because of hunger???

I havent had to supplement her with any formula yesterday or today. Yay!
Thanks again for the help and the links

I decided I had to supplement because my lo was sucking and sucking and getting incredibly frustrated, shed come off crying and then quickly latch again and suck and nothing would be coming out and so on. I knew she wasnt getting enough milk.
