Hello my 11day old baby was really good at latching on and also I express so she has a bottle as well but tonight and during the day yesterday she just won't latch and the screams because she's hungry. I breast feeding more than bottle. Bottle is just if we go out and I'm not too comfortable in feeding in public yet. But also the last day or two I don't feel like my boobs are getting hard does this mean not enough milk is now coming in ??? Can it just stop even if still breastfeeding at a short amount of time ????
When I tried to express not as much as usual came out ?

Hello and congratulations on your new baby thanks

How much you can express isn't an indication of how much milk you are producing, so don't worry about that. Instead, check if she's getting enough milk here.

If she wouldn't latch at all yesterday, can I ask how you fed her?

Hi OP, when you say she has bottles of ebm, how often would you say that was? Do you pump at the same time as she's receiving the bottle? And if not, does that mean that the breasts are going several hours without being fed or expressed from?
Would need to know more details but feeding like this so early on could impact on your supply.
Would you like some support to build up your confidence to feed in public?
