background: i had a very low supply with DD #1, so she was supplemented w/ formula from 1 month on. i HATED EVERY SECOND of giving her formula.
this time, i've been taking fenugreek, brewer's yeast, and pumping 3x a day since DD #2 was born. she was 2 mo old yesterday. sometimes i feel like she's not getting enough at my breast...she'll be super fussy..pulling on and off again. i often give her the milk that i pump (btwn 1-3 oz each session). DH wants to buy formula to have on hand for days when she doesnt seem satisfied and says for me to just pump whenever she gets the formula. I don't want to do that! I feel like, if this is a supply issue, formula will just add to it. on the other hand, how much harm could 1 or 2 formula bottles a day do?
sidenote: I worked out today...I've noticed that the other days that I've worked out she seemed unsatisfied. By no means were these great workouts: 20 min elliptical or 1 mile jog w/ abs/arms routine. think that could be a possible culprit??
what are you opinions?
