    Lacking milk

    I was breastfeeding my son since birth (2 months) and had problems making enough milk to begin with so I had to supplement as he wasn't gaining weight. Now because I was having to pump and couldn't feed him as often I have been having problems producing milk to begin with I was getting about 2 oz every pump or more, now I might get a few drips.. that's it. I would really like to continue to breastfeed him but I am having no luck.
    Anyone have any tips they can give me?

    Nurse him - a lot - anytime it is possible! His suckling will stimulate your supply more than pumping ever will. The more you supplement, the less milk your body will make, because he is getting his needs met with formula. So keep nursing him as much as possible to help your supply pick up.
