I have a month and half baby girl, who was born at 35 weeks. She breast feeds great but latley she is screaming after feeding acting still hungry and when I pump I'm not getting much. I think my milk is drying up or I'm not making enough. How can I get my milk supply up and start making more milk? I really need help with this cause she will not take a bottle for anyone either. I have tryed 5 different kind of bottle but she just wants me. Please help.

It is normal not to get as much milk when you pump as your baby can get when feeding from the breast, so you shouldn't use this as a gauge of how much milk you are producing. The chances are, your baby girl is "cluster feeding" which is something they do when they go through growth spurts. This is a natural reaction to help you continue to produce greater amounts of milk so that your baby's needs can be met. I know, you probably feel like she is constantly on the breast at the moment, but this is the best way to make more milk :)
