I have been supplementing my 4 1/2 month old ds since he was nine days old. I have practically tried everything, all the herbs, renting a hospital grade pump, nursing vacation, sns, etc. And I am still struggling, and only able to produce 1/2 of ds needs. I just want to give up because despite the fact that I sometimes use the sns, it just isn't very practical. And it seems every time I give ds a bottle, he cries after the milk or formula is all gone. I am afraid he is not getting enough to eat. How do you other low supply mothers do it? Do your babies cry after their bottle is gone? Right now he is getting 4 or 5 ounce bottles 4 times a day. I am thinking about upping the amount, but of course it is a never ending cycle because the more formula he gets, the less he breastfeeds, and I am bringing the pump back this weekend. DH is tired of all this, and I am alot of the time too. I feel like breastfeeding, producing milk has become my life. It just doesn't seem worth it to continue so unhappy all the time, I try to be optimistic, but it is so hard. Financially, I can't afford to buy a nice electric pump, so I saw one on ebay for cheap and told DH about it, he acted all annoyed, saying that "I talk about quiting bfing, so why would I want to get a pump. We've spent money we really didn't have on renting a hospital pump, so I feel guilty about that, and all I have is an avent manual to fall back on after I bring the symphony back. DH said I could buy the pump on ebay, but I feel guilty because of our financial situation and the fact taht I know I can't produce enough milk. Advice please!
