Hi my baby is 48 days old and she started breastfeeding very late as I dint have milk till 1week post delivery. She got used to formula and took time for breastfeeding. Now that she started breastfeed I feel that I don't have enough milk supply. Because as soon as she finishes breastfeeding she is still hungry and I have to give her formula feed every time. I am eating all types of foods that help in increasing milk supply but I don't see any result. And apart from this I have sore and dry nipples and I am using nipple shields and sometimes my nipples bleed. I can see left over milk is in brown colour in the nipple shield. Please suggest me what should I do? Is it okay if my baby depends on formula instead of my milk?
