Ds is 7 weeks old and is mix fed, i would love to ebf,at the moment i am putting ds to the breast before each bottle feed,he has 10 min ish on each boob then he gets angry and wants his bottle of 4ozs of formula he drinks all of it. Is it pos to go cold turkey and just bf the thing is we had problems with bf so i dont think my milk supply is good, i am taking domperidone. would my milk supply increase the more he feeds? Also i dont feel the let down or leak milk is this a sign that i dont have much milk? I cant seem to express more than a oz before the milk stops coming out does this mean it has ran out? sorry for all the dumb questions but i am finding hard to understand how bf works
I have been seeing a great bfc but i have not seen her for a while, i was happy with the way things are, we are both really starting to enjoy bf thats why i would love to ebf. i wont be able to see her untill after half term now.
don't go cold turkey. i've cut down the ffs, (in very similar position to you) by half and as such ds put on no weight in 9 days. have realised i need to bf more - not only on demand so i'm not exactly babymooning but bfing as much as he will feed, not only when he asks. if you go cold turkey your bub will likely lose weight which will worry everyone. the way to build up supply is to feed like crazy - but reduce the ffs gradually.
