My little girl was born 5 weeks preterm and had to start on formula while I pumped. We slowly started the breast and supplemented with formula or expressed milk. Now we are 3 weeks in and I am trying to only give her the breast but I keep running dry. All day long she feeds every 2 hours and then around 8 or 9pm she gets super hungry and I can't keep up. I have nothing for her after multiple feedings sometimes only 45 mins apart. I am sad and frustrated and don't know what to do because of her early arrival she didn't start out the traditional way and all the advice I read doesn't apply. I cry every time I am forced to give her a bottle. On a side note I am not pumping and trying to focus solely on the breast, not too mention nothing comes out when I pump.
