Every time you supplement with a bottle you need to start pumping. Breastfeeding works on supply and demand so you need to get your body to understand there is a demand, the only say to do that is to breastfeed and pump often. It's going to be time consuming but worth it. Make sure you are drinking plenty if water and you can try taking an herbal supplement called fenugreek to build up your supply.
