Ok so I have pretty much exclusively breastfed my now 4month old son. Occasionally I have had to give him a formula bottle due to not being around and not being able to pump extra to store. My Dr. said that he is fine but he is 4 months old and only 12 lbs and 24 in. I just don't feel that he is getting enough to eat. I gave him one of the few pumped bottles that I had the other day and then pumped and only got an ounce and a half. I know that he can get a lot more out then the pump can but I feel my supply is going down. I do not want to formula feed but what do I do? He is very strong and seems to be advancing fine but gets hungry pretty often. However at night he does go to sleep at 9 or so and wakes up between 1 and 2am the again 4am and 6am. So any advice would be helpful. Keeping in mind that I want to continue to breastfeed. Am I just over thinking the situation?
