DS was born with a blood sugar issue and my milk was not coming in at all. I had to formula feed from the start, although he wanted to nurse and is great about it. He needed to be fed so much to keep his sugars up, but was eventually put on an IV as well. He's fine now, but I still can't keep up with his needs. I'll nurse him for an hour and my breasts are drained and he still wants more. He'll then drink 2 or 3 ounces of formula. He's eating every just about every 2 hours as well.
My midwife is really pushing me to breastfeed, but honestly it's so much easier and less stressful to give him a bottle. When I pump, not after nursing or anything, I only get about 1 ounces combined from both sides. Any advice? Should I keep trying to nurse and be frustrated or go with the bottle? I'm feeling way conflicted about it and want to do what's best for my little guy.
