problems breastfeeding

by Janet
(Taylor mi )

I need someone to help me with breastfeeding. I had a baby 5 weeks ago.

I have birth at 36 weeks premature. 3 days later he became jaundice and was taken to nicu under the uv light for 48 hours.

They would not let me breastfeed. He was bottle feed in hospital. My plan is to breastfeed exclusively but I was told I have to supplement.

I breast feed then bottle feed formula. Baby drinks what he gets from me which is about 2 oz then I give him about 2-3 oz every other feeding. What can I do to eliminate supplementing formula??
