Thank you for all the mommies out there who shared their thoughts.. I really appreciate it..
My husband is away, and so im the only one taking care of my 2months and half baby.. It is difficult.. I dont get enough sleep.. Sometimes i only get 3hrs sleep the whole day.. I do mixed feedings since for the first week i did exclusive breast feeding and my nipples really cracked and super sore.. So since then i did mixed feeding to rest my nipples.. Instead, i pump.. Up to the point that my baby needs of milk increase and i can't catch up anymore.. Before i can pump 10oz a day.. And thats good for 5 feedings since i give 2oz every feeding.. And the rest is formula.. Yet now that he's getting bigger and he still get hungry, i give him 4oz of formula.. The problem is my milk supply.. It never increase.. And it's like it is decreasing.. I drink vitamin supplement like moringa capsules that claims help increasing milk supply.. I drink lots of fluid.. Yet nothing happens.. My boobies are getting smaller going back to their original size.. And i don't leak anymore..
Anything i can do???
I will really appreciate your advises..
