Oh okay. Yes I agree, I dont think that would be enough either. Well I think the first priority would be to make sure he is getting enough nutrition period. On one hand I would say trying formula again, maybe with a different (bottle) nipple, something that would mimic your breast (Ive seen the wide bottle/ nipple, and it also mimic's the feel of the breast again his face/mouth) and holding him to your breast while feeding him with it. Kinda trick him. In the meantime (if you could get that to work for now) you could try pumping often and trying to encourage your milk supply to speed up and produce the amount that he needs.

Hi Lupita, I didn't think that after that amount of time you would still be producing milk at all.
