So I have been breastfeeding my little girl for two weeks. I'm thinking about switching to formula because she is spitting up a lot when she eats. Also I have to fight her sometimes to get her to eat because she starts eating and pulls back screaming. I've expressed the excess and even pumped. It getting to be so much pain and a big headache. What are some thoughts? Plus I have a 2 year old who's still in diapers and I have to try take care of him and feed her so I'm at a loss and a very frustrated mommy right now.!

I nursed my first born for two months and my milk supply couldn't keep up with his demand. So we switched with him and it was so much easier. Yea price of formula bs breast milk is a no brainier. But when you take a greedy fussy baby and make him happy baby it's worth it. With her idk I burp her and sit her up afterward and still spits up even when drinking from a bottle. Idk it's just so hectic trying feed her while running the roads I'm not sure what I want to do yet

This is such a personal decision. Were you able to nurse your firstborn? Two weeks is still so young, she may be a bit colicky as well. My son would latch like he was starving and then let go and arch back and scream. Are you burping her every few minutes? When she eats, try to keep her upright for afterward (I know easier said then done) and see if she holds her feed down.
