So my boys are almost a month old now (crazy how fast that went!). I've been EBFing with the exception of maybe 5 bottles of formula between the two of them since they were born.
I am going out of my mind.
The boys have been getting increasingly fussy and have been showing hunger cues every 1-2 hours. I'm exhausted. I feel like I've failed for even considering formula at night, but i worry that my supply will suffer from lack of sleep and increased stress. I've started dreading nursing at night and that makes me so sad.
I pump once in the morning and normally get around 3 ounces. If I pump at any other time, I get next to nothing... So I don't have enough milk to supplement with a bottle of expressed milk instead of formula.
Is it terrible that I am considering supplementing for a night feeding or two? If you do it, how do you make sure your LO still wants the breast? Did you have any issues introducing formula?
Any other advice is welcome too. I'm so discouraged right now
