Thanks God, I feel I was very lucky in breastfeeding my baby. As it was little difficulty in the beginning but within a week my baby started latching properly. For six month she was exclusively on breastfeed and till 2 & 1/2 yr I continued to feed her.

my daughter was born premature so after birth only she was admitted to the NICU. I have faced the same problem. but formula feed won the battle. and with this I started to feel that I wasn't able to feed my baby because my nipples are small, but then later I got to know that due to her preterm birth she was weak so she was not able to suck properly. so due to that my milk supply stopped completely.

I can also relate to this as I have Insufficient supply as well. I have also tried feeding again n again or pumping again n again but but my supply is not increasing and thus have to give formula as well. I also give my milk whatever comes and pump it on regular basis.

i just delivered by boy 21 days back. This is my 2nd child but during my first boy my cousin had advised me not to let the hospital staff feed formula milk to the baby. so I had already informed my doctor that I would like to immediately feed my baby after birth. The anaesthetic was telling me to take a sedation which will make me sleep for 6 hours and I would get enough rest. But I was firm on my decision of not resting and feeding the baby instead. Thanks to my cousin it gave me peace of mind. Since then everytime I meet a pregnant lady I pass this information to them so they make the right choice at the right moment.

After reading ur story many mom's felt related to themselves as me too. But my case is bit different ND would like to share with you all. Actually I got delivered at the end of 7th month. Baby was in incubator. So I had no option to pump my milk and give it. This went up to 50 days ND as baby was premature his weight was too less ND Dr's did not allowed me to breastfeed. This feeling was very bad ND it killed me from inside. But after some days I stared to breastfeed with silicone nipples as I had flat nipples but my baby was not latching since he got familiar with bottle. I pumped ND gave my milk till end of 6th month. But after 6th month when I started giving him food I started to avoid pumping my milk ND my milk supply became less and now it's like hardly 2-3 drops. But now I feel that at least one more year (now my baby is 1 year old) I should give him breast milk. So can anyone help me out? I don't know that my milk supply will increase or not. What shall I do plz suggest me mom's. Will my milk supply increase now?

hello Neha The same thing happened for me. I don't have enough milk after delivery , because of that my baby got fever within two days. so my pediatrician suggest to give formulae to increase birth weight. so I am giving both breastfeeding and formulae to my one month baby. My aunty saying that "breastmilk should come very force for all women,but u have insufficient milk so continue the formula to increase baby weight". But I dont like to give formulae to my baby. please suggest to increase the supply of breast milk.
