    ticker2- why do u think ur supply is going down? if its because your breast dont feel full thats normal, your body regulates to what your baby needs,and you make milk as baby nurses. if baby has 4-6 wet diapers a day ur good 🙂 and is gaining. but if you want to increase ur supply, you can take a nursing support supplement they have them @whole…[Read more]

    Tunny904- you could try goats milk, its closer tasting t breast milk, and easier to digest. most babies will take it. you can buy it in powder form its a little cheaper than by the gallon or quart

    msbree- every baby is different. there is no set amount of time a baby should nurse for. if he nurses for 10 min is happy then hes fine. he will show you if hes not getting enough, will cry, root around ect. and hes having enough wet and poopy diapers then your good. its hard at first to know if your baby is getting enough because you cant see it…[Read more]

    Beegee- here s a calculator how much a baby eats you put in age weight ects so you can get an idea of how much expressed milk you would need to leave. even though a typical baby around alexis age would prob have about 8-10oz she would only ever take 5oz out of a sippy cup never took bottles. you could freeze it in smaller bags too that way if she…[Read more]
