I need some help!

Hey I've got a baby that's 4 months old on the 16 th! She nursed fine for the first24 hours, but because she was 6 weeks early the nurse decided that we should give her a bottle!


Instantly she went from nursing 15 minutes a side to 3-4 minutes, thus I never was able to get my milk in! Is there any hope?

Hi!

The more you breastfeed your baby, the more milk you will produce. If you start to slowly replace bottle feeds with breast feeds, your body will start producing more milk.

You could try to breastfeed baby before you offer the bottle, you could breastfeed with a SNS. "Supplementary nursing system"

You can pump in between feeding to increase supply and I will list a few helpful pages for increasing milk supply...
