My supply is so low at night I've been supplementing with 1 bottle of formula & breast milk anight per the pediatricians advice. I let my son nurse on both sides before I offer the bottle but after he's been nursing for a while, he'll start squirming and grunting and then eventually pull off screaming and desperately trying to re-latch to eat and will then guzzle down the bottle in minutes. In the morning my son will eat off of one side so I've been pumping for 20 min on the side he eats on. I do this for the first 4 morning sessions (twice on each side) to help increase my supply. I usually only get 1/2 ounce per pumping session and put that in the bottle I give him at night.
Do you have any suggestions on what else I can try to help create more milk for him at night so I don't have to give him formula?
Should I be pumping the side he feeds on AND the side he doesn't feed on in the morning; just pump the side he feeds on; or just pump the side he doesn't feed on?
