My daughter will be 6 weeks on Tuesday and I have some questions...
First, she does well nursing all day. Seems pretty satisfied, but once night comes along she wants to nurse straight through from about 6pm-2am. Is this normal? Is this a sign of low supply?
I just started pumping, buy only get about 1 ounce (combined for both sides). Is this normal? I know she drinks more like 2 ounces every 2 hours, but if I'm only pumping 1 ounce every 2 hours how will I sustain her?
She was born small 5.14 and went down to 4.13 a week after she was born. I have had to supplement her with formula, but that has slowly decreased in the past few weeks and I've only found myself supplementing at night. I want to get her completely off the formula, but am concerned with the nightly feeding. I hope someone can help me with ways to increase my supply!
