I have a 6 1/2 month old little girl who has been on formula for about 2 months. I started having issues with low supply at 4 months and my doctor kinda talked me out of trying to keep bf. I really want to get her back on mamas milk though so I started relactating about a week ago. My supply is going up nicely (I got a whole oz in one sitting this morning ) and DD has never stopped comfort nursing at night so she still latches well.
However, now she latches and falls asleep right away. She'll do a few "butterfly sucks", maybe a few weak little ones while she sleeps but that is it. I know I have enough milk to at least get her mostly full (she takes 3oz a bottle now) if she would just work a bit harder to get to the milk.
Any ideas on how to get her to suck rather than just fall asleep?? I never thought I would wish she would stay awake, but here we are. lol.
