Being supplementing breast feeding my 2 month old. Lately when I breast feed her she cries and pulls off and isn't sucking properly it make clicking noises. I dont want to stop breastfeeding and I have being pumping so I have milk for the baby, what can I do?

Need a little more information please.

-Why are you supplementing?
-How often are you supplementing?
-How long have you been supplementing?

Supplementing can cause a few issues
#1) Supply decrease. You are taking away that stimulation to make more milk. No demand, no increase in supply.
#2) Risk of nipple confusion. Baby prefers the bottle rather than the breast, making it difficult for baby to latch

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
