    I know I only produce an ounce and a half to two ounces per feeding. That is totally not enough.

    Have you tried to boost how much you produce? There are several things that are supposed to help with that like oatmeal, fenugren and Mother's Milk tea

    Im giving Aiden about 2 bottles a day because I feel like I need to give my boobs sometime to produce milk...lol, seriously he is eating so much I feel like giving him formula twice a day is the only way for me to continue breastfeeding. Im not ready to stop yet.

    I tried all those too and pumped between some feedings and knew I didn't produce enough. Anyway, I would nurse first and then give her formula. Sometimes she'd finish her bottle of formula, sometimes she wouldn't. But I always nursed first.

    I did end up just going to all formula, but it was for other reasons, not my lack of milk production.

    I am going to try those things to see if I can produce more milk. Right now I know I am not making enough. But he only gets about 2 oz of formula total a day. I want to keep giving him breast milk as long as its coming.

    With Ethan I had hardly any milk. So the LC had me give a bottle after I breastfed to top him off. I was also taking fenugreek, eating oatmeal and all that stuff. In the end I went to all formula because he was losing weight because he didnt want the bottle and only me

    Good luck!
