My son will be 4 months old on the 18th. My milk never really came in that I noticed (never got engorged), but he has been EBF minus a few bottles the first two weeks. I barely make enough his weight is starting to slow down and Im getting worried.
I don't know if because we got off to such a rough start that Ive missed the window. I read the first 12 weeks are crucial. Im beyond that point now. I have tried all the supplements, but I am not a good pumper. I try to pump at night but I end up failing at that task. I do pump once at night to try to have bottles for the 2 days I am at school.
I have read of women who relactated, but those are usually moms who had a full supply from the time they actually did breastfeed. I really want to increase just a little bit. I pump 2oz every 2hours (thats when I dont nurse him). I would love to get to 3oz. IT's not a tall order, but one that seems so far away and almost in not impossible to achieve.
I know some will say its not all or nothing. My son doesn't tolerate formula. I tried a couple times and he cried for a couple days till it worked out of his system.
Any advice is appreciated
