My twin boys are 3 months. At 2 months they were both of 10 lbs and I was able to stop supplementing formula. I have been strickly breastfeeding both of them the last month. I made the mistake to pump once to hurry and feed and get out the door. I only produced 3 oz in the left and 2 oz in the right , with a feed 3 hrs earlier. They usually go 2-4 hrs between feeds during the day and they have plenty of wet diapers. QUESTIONS.......My question is how do you know they are getting enough? Do they get a bottle of breastmilk or formula? How many ounces are they eating? How long did you breastfeed? I am torn to continue breastfeeding or stop and do formula. I do feel a little guilty thinking about stopping. I am able to breastfeed and I know there are some mom's out there who can't and would love to breastfeed. Am I bad to think about stopping breastfeeding and starting formula?
