    Question Help with increasing milk supply

    Hi,
    My son is 8 weeks old and has been supplemented with formula since he was a few days old. Is it possible for me to breastfeed him exclusively??? I always nurse him before giving him formula. I have been trying to pump more often the past few days and I have been drinking the mother's milk tea. Any suggestions on how I can increase my milk supply??
    Also someone told me that oatmeal can help, is that true?

    How worrying!
    What was the reason you started to supplement so early?

    Have you checked out the *sticky* post at the top of this forum:
    "Useful articles about increasing your milk"
    http://lalecheleague.org/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=104

    There is a lot of excellent information there about increasing your milk. Please let us know which of the suggestions (if any) you have already tried and how they worked for you, and then we can use that as a starting point.

    warmly,
