I just discovered tonight that I am not really producing enough milk for my son anymore. He has been so cranky and I couldn't figure out what was wrong until I gave him a bottle of formula and he took 3 ounces in just a few minutes only 30 minutes after I had nursed him. I've decided to go ahead and do the switch to formula but I am not quite sure how to go about it. Should I nurse him 1/2 as often now? Also this is the first bottle he has had in 4 or 5 months and I have NO CLUE as to how many ounces of formula a baby his age takes. If anyone else has had to do this or knows anything about it i'd really appreciate the help!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!
