Ok, so here's my situation. My daughter is 4 months old and has been weird on the breast for the last week. It seemed like nothing was coming out, and 2-3 hours had past since her last feed so I "should've had milk", well she kept sucking for a couple seconds and than would twist in annoyance. So I decided well I'll just pump it out. NOTHING! I'm drinking enough water. So I'm thinking it's because she wants more food. So I've been giving her some Rice cereal mixed in with some breastmilk once or twice a day. This is only because I can usually pump at night when she's gone to bed, but I only get 60-90 mL at most. So I'm trying to feed her, and also I'm trying to store milk up because I'm in my best friends wedding on 8/7 so my husband is going to have to give her most of her feeding for that day, but I'm also trying to give her some milk with rice cereal to satisfy her since she's often not getting anything out of me once or twice a day. I'm trying to do this without dipping into the milk I already have stored, but that's not working out. I'm sooooo stressed, and I just don't know what to do or how to go about anything anymore.
