I breastfed my 6.5 mo son for the first month but have been supplementing ever since. I would like to go back to BF exclusively again, but I'm not sure how. I would say I'm at 70/30 formula to BF. http://forums.llli.org/images/icons/icon9.gif I'm BF mainly on the mornings.
It's been going down more and more and I'm at the point where I'm feeling really down about it. I'm wondering if it's too late...
I used to have a strong let down, but don't feel it anymore. Baby doesn't feed if there's not a lot of milk. And I have a Pump In Style, but pumping isn't as effective because Baby sucks way harder so I barely feel the pump. Right now I'm pumping for 10 minutes and hand expressing after that. Hand expression seems to be effective on one side, I can hardly get anything out on the other side, even though I know there's milk.
What do I do to increase so I can start cutting out the formula? How much water should I be drinking? I think that may be my biggest problem. Any help would be appreciated!
