Myself and my family just got back from visiting relatives over the holidays. While there I allowed my husband to bottle feed (formula) our 2 and half month old a few times. There were 17 people in the house. 6 of them were children and sleep was hard to come by plus the baby being woke up by the noise every so often. Now I don't seem to be letting down as frequently and when I do it is not as much. I seem to be letting down every 4 hours when my infant wants to eat every 2. I am trying to nurse him now with no formula. WE try every hour and a half to every 2 hours to nurse but I don't let down till the 4th hour mark and by then he is irate and won't latch at all. I have a medela pump in style and try and use it every 2 hours when he is too mad to nurse. What do I do? I need milk more frequently and more of it!
