my son is eating 4-5 oz about every 3 hours but some days he wants 4-5 oz every 20 or 30 mins and I can't produce that, my breast get so empty that they really hurt. I try to freeze some milk when he sleeps (if i can get any). And use that when he goes on his hunger runs. How can I get more milk to produce? And how can a 6 week old need that much milk (he is about 9lbs)
I will not use formula due to an alergie that my brother had and I don't want to risk the same thing happening with my son.
