Have you ever breast feed your baby? It is hard work. I am 3 weeks into breastfeeding and I think I am lacking milk supply. I just don't think I can keep up with the demands of my baby. My baby is always on the boob, but sometimes I feel she is using me as a nookie. I called the lactation consultant and she told me I am fine, but I feel she is not getting what she needs. I sometimes give her a supplement of formula just to help boost her a little so my boob can have an hour rest. How many ounces of milk should I be producing in the 3rd week? I understand your body knows what to make according to the demand of the baby, but like I said I need to increase something because she is always on my boob. I also thought of switching to formula, just for the convenience factor. I know, I know breast is best. I know all about the immunity factors and everything that pertains, but sometimes life is just easier when it is more convenient. I guess I just want some advise from other mothers who have breast feed. Is it normal to feel this way? One of my friends told me that she was pumping 8-9 ounces by the third week. I am lucky if I get 2.5 ounces from both breasts. Is this so called normal? I am not sure what to do about the whole breast feeding ordeal. I am a little frustrated! I feel like a dried up old cow! Any advise for a gal in need?
