My daughter is 5 months. I started giving her cereal at 4.5 months. She loves it. I prefer to use the cereal in which you add your own breastmilk in order to sweeten the bland taste for her. Also, I'm trying to get her back on the bottle (or at least take it some of the time) as she has 2 teeth and I have been bitten one too many times (my poor boobs).
I can't seem to pump enough milk. I would like about 5-6 oz, but am only getting 2-3 oz and that's after I have to get up in the middle of the night to pump. If I pump during the day it drains me, leaving not enough for her. During the day I feed her approx every 2 - 2.5 hrs.
Any suggestions as to how to produce more milk????? I'm a first time mom & I would love some advice. Thanks!!
