Hi, My story is very long. I have a 4 month old baby and a 5 yr old. I could not breastfeed my 5 yr old due to ignorance. So this time around, I was really determined to breastfeed my newborn. Her birth weight was 6.7 lbs. She was given BM + formula in hospital and i started pumping also since she would sleep while feeding. After we came home we continued with BM + formula for the first week. Then after reading a lot about Formula trap, i stopped formula cold turkey. She was latched for very long time periods during the day, on demand. She would cry and i would latch her again. She would keep trying and crying sometimes since there would be no milk. In the next visit (1st month visit), her weight gain was not enough. It was 6.14 lbs. And her wt percentile dropped to 1%. So the doc suggested to supplement with formula. I was very guilty for doing this to her. I felt that she cried and i did not feed her enough, only because i wanted to breastfeed her and i thought demand and supply is the only way to go. Finally i realized and accepted that my supply is less. So now she is on BM and formula. I joined back work when she was 2 months old. I am still struggling to provide her as much BM i can. And i breastfeed on demand as well. My weekday schedule (on a best day): 8am - breastfeed the baby 10am - pump at work (~2 oz) 12:30pm - pump at work (~2 oz) 2:30pm - pump at work (~2 oz) 6pm - breastfeed the baby 9pm - breastfeed the baby 1am - breastfeed the baby + pump (~2 oz) 5am - breastfeed the baby + pump (~3 oz) + On-demand feeding whenever required With this crazy schedule, i was able to leave 10 oz for the baby for the next day. My inlaws take care of her during the day. They would feed her 10oz refrigerated BM + 3 oz formula during the time I am at work. I come back from work and breastfeed her but She would still have to be supplemented with formula (~3oz at 7pm) So, she gets formula twice everyday (~3 oz each time). Since I am nursing and pumping all the time, I am exhausted and stressed. Nighttime pumping especially is hard since i spend the whole day at work and evening with older kid and family. Sometimes, i cant wake up 2 times in the night and feel really guilty about leaving her less milk for the next day. I get help at home but its still not enough with 2 kids and work. I try to sleep early, but some days it works and most of the days it does not. Weekends are hectic due to older kids activities. Husband is very understanding and takes care of most of older kids stuff. I dont want to give up on whatever breastmilk i am able to provide her. But for that i need to wake up twice in the night to pump, only at that time i have extra milk, during the day the milk is less. But lack of sleep is taking a toll on me now. I have already tried galactagogues like lacation cookie, fenugreek, mothers milk tea. And they have not really helped a lot. Please dont suggest to supplement more formula than what i am already doing. Please dont suggest to take a break from work, its not possible. Please suggest me ways to give her as much breastmilk i can. I feel the need to change my schedule to below to maintain sanity, please suggest if this will hinder my milk supply. 8am - breastfeed the baby 11am - pump at work (~3 oz) 2:30pm - pump at work (~3 oz) 6pm - breastfeed the baby 9pm - breastfeed the baby 5am - breastfeed the baby + pump (~4 oz) Open to suggestions and questions. Looking for words of support and encouragement. Please be kind and thanks a lot for all the help! ~Struggling mom!
