I have been breast feeding for 6 months without any problems. I had a 6 week early infant and he took right away. However, for the last month he has seemed to not want to feed from me a lot. I introduced solids at about 5 months. We only gave them to him maybe 5 times during the month and we also gave him formula from a bottle about 10 times.
He has never wanted to really feed from the left breast but I always put him to it. The last week, he has not wanted to feed much from me. My left breast is sooo soft and not I think isn't making much milk. My right is still getting engordged when I go for a long time without feeding (through the night). I have tried to start feeding him again every 2-3 hours during the day on both breasts to make sure I am using both. We were giving him a bottle or two a day since he wasn't feeding from me but I have tried to stop doing that too.
He also is only feeding for several minutes and then stops (hence why I have been supplementing).
What could be going on with my left breast? Is it just not making the milk and that is why he isn't feeding well on that side? If I can get him to feed more on it, do you think it will start to fill up again? It almost seems like he is trying to ween already but I'm not ready.
I need some suggestions because I at least want to feed in morning and at night. I am home with him during the day too though and will continue to feed as long as he will. I just am tired of being so lopsided. My right breast is much larger/fuller than the other because of the amount of the milk.
