We supplemented with a bit of formula in the beginning because I couldn't keep up with his needs the first month or so. Then, when I did catch up, we continued to give formula once at night (so I could have a chance to pump once a day, so DH could take part in the feeding process and so that he would be used to formula when we had to make the switch.
At around 3-4 months, one side dried up, so I was feeding him every two hours day and night from just one side! Around 4.5 months I decided to start adding another bottle once a day. Each week I added another bottle. Then at 5.5 months, I got sick and dried up for a few days. We had to give only bottles. After that it was a challenge to get DS to nurse at all. By 6 months he was totally on formula.
