my baby is 17 days old... with each day passing, I am unable to breastfeed him to his satisfaction. hence, his quantity of top feed (lactogen) is increasing... i am not happy with this alternative.. as I have heard its not a good way...

The more you will feed your baby with formula milk the amount of breast milk will decrease..... The more the baby will suck your breast the more milk will be produced.... So stop giving top feed and just give your baby you breasts to suck.....

Lactogen is not at all good. It is low quality FM. Please try to feed him BM.

I agree with puloma pandey and Shikha Batra . I faced the similar problem in the beginning. My baby wasn't with me for 29 days. He was hospitalized and was mostly formula fed.. I thought things will never go back to normal but now he is 1. 5 month old and I can feed him with breastfeed completely. Just relax. Be positive. Stay happy. Eat healthy. Drink sufficient milk. Ask someone to give you a nice back massage... Good food as well as positive attitude will help you... Don't be stressed over milk issue... Feed him as much as possible... U can even consider pumping and expressing milk... Hope this helps
