Thanks all!  I am starting to wonder the same thing.  I think we just need to work on latch and my own let down...  Some feedings are great and others are teary, but I think we're getting a bit better?  I just wish I knew for sure about supply...oh well.  We have a follow up with the LC tomorrow.  Maybe that will clear things up.  I am pumping more milk per day than he is drinking from the bottle, so I am ahead of the curve as far as his needs.  He just doesn't always want to drink well at the boob...then we have a very upset hungry baby.
