Hi! I’ve been breastfeeding my daughter for 8 months. At this point I feel like I’m not producing enough because when I pump I’m getting very little amounts. I know she is satisfied when I nurse her but trying to get enough for the bottles during the week has become a extremely difficult and frustrating task so I’ve been thinking about supplementing formula for the two days a week I’m at work. Now that I’m about to be certified in a new trade I’m going to start working more and if it’s hard to make enough for those two days I can only imagine it’ll be worse when I’m gone more.

I’m just wondering who also supplements and how you introduced it and how your child adjusted.

I feel so disappointed in myself I wanted to make go to a year without formula but I’m just becoming discouraged.
