I am a busy young mother of a 3 month old, who is in school full time, and working part time. I used to be able to pump a lot of milk to make up for the times that I am away, but lately I feel as though my baby just wants to eat and eat. She eats 2 bottles for every 2-3 hours that I am away! So thats about 15 bottles a week, or more! So bewteen feeding during the day, and trying to pump, I am "running" out of milk. Does anyone have any recommendations? Should I mix formula and milk, or start with cereal? Help!

Try both and stage 1 foods. It will make her feel full and she wont depend on milk all the time.

try fenugreek and mother's milk tea to help boost your supply. she just might be going through a growth spurt.
