Hi girlies *waves*
For the first few weeks when my little boy was born feeding him was horrifically sore so after 6 weeks I made the worst decision & gave him a bottle of formula and pumped for a few days, combined with formula as i wasn't pumping enough for him.
I only did this for about a week, but since then my milk supply has never been what it used to be so have to feed him both breast milk with a top up of formula after.
I really want to just get him back onto breast milk, I've been trying to feed him every hour or so. But often no or little milk comes out and he gets restless when theres no milk.
Also i think i have a slow let down and have to fight with him for ages to stay on my breast before any milk comes out.
Sorry for the essay, hope i made some sort of sense. x
