My baby boy is 20 days old and he breastfeed very well. The only concern I have is that he sometimes asks to feed every half hour!! He seems to be starving at times and will holler for milk for hours. I've started giving him 2 to 4 ozs of formula after breastfeeding. I can't help but feel like a 'bad mom' because my milk supply isn't big enough for my baby's needs. I had the same problem with my first born (my milk supply wasn't big enough for her demand). Fortunately, my baby will take the breast and the bottle without any problems. I am wondering, should I just keep giving top ups of formula or should I invest in a pump and have breast milk bottles ready to satisfy his big appetite?
