My daughter will officially be 4 months old in a couple days and I had gotten her to eating ever two hours and once or twice a week she would go thru a day of eating only every hour. now it is all the time and has been this way for over a week. I am starting to go insane. She wont take formula, I have tried three different kinds to see if the change in taste will help and she only takes two sucks and then spits it all out. I do know that I never get the let down feeling anymore, and my breasts dont get nearly as full as they used to. I know I am producing milk and she gets it in her because I squeeze some out and fire it across the room. I also cant seem to pump anymore I never get more than a couple ml's. I have tried every couple days to see and nothing. The only time I got almost an oz was when I fed her and pumped at the same time but she would kick the pump away from my other breast. I am worried if she is not getting enough, but her weight is 55% for her age group so I know she is gaining, or she just metabloizes it really fast. Her father has an extremely high metabolism and had a lot of eating problems when he was an infant ( but he was the sickly twin) Just wondering who else has these issues and if they found a solution. My breast feeding clinic wont reopen for another two weeks becuase of the H1N1 vaccinations, so I am patiently waiting for it to open.
