My son just doesn't seem to be getting enough. I'm feeding every 2 to 4 hours in the day, most times for 1 to 2 hours swooping breasts after about 20 mins. He still seems hungry so iv been topping him up with formula. He manages to take 3 fl oz of formula straight after the breast. I don't get it!Im eating & drinking well... he latches on well.. if imI'm lucky he will nap once during the day. Sleeps well at night as i only offer bottle formula at night. Fusses and crys lots in the day. Keeps sticking out his tounge too.
When iv tried expressing I never manage to get much out but when he feeds on the boob I squeeze my nipple to make sure there is milk and there is.
I just don't understand :(
