Drink lots of water/fluid, believe it or not, the more the baby ***** the more your body will make, so if you supplement, your supply will go down, UNLESS you pump during the time you supplement. I dont pump but when im at work i do express my milk out i think thats why i still have supply during the day time. The more the baby ***** or nipples are stimulated, the more supply you will get.
I think that is normal though. Breastmilk digest quickly, he was probably to tired from the sucking, it took my baby an hour just to get full, i had to find a good position to put her in and i went to see a lactation specialist to help me with getting her to latch better. I had thought at once she was not getting enough but she was. If your baby ***** for 10 min and go to sleep then that means they are satisfied, but i also heard women say they would do 10 min on each breast and the baby would be content for 2 hours. Now my daughter is 3months and during the night she may nurse every hour, sometimes it is periods she nurse every 30 min for like 2 hours(that s u c k s) espeically the mournings i have to work. I also supplement when im at work, and sometimes during the night she may get one bottle so i can at least get 5 hours of str8 sleep.
