Help! BF does't satisfy her...
Im new to the forums but see there is loads of sage advice. I could use some at the moment.
I am trying to exclusively BF my second girl, who is now 3 weeks old. However, I had her latching incorrectly after about week 1 and suffered a major injury to one nipple. That led me to pump and my husband was pressuring me to supplement with formula. Now, in that short time period, I am supplementing with approx 3 -4 bottles of formula a day (4-5oz each) and it seems to be increasing daily. I am still BF every 3 hours, but she is not satisfied at all - and continues to scream and root after as much as a 45 min BF session. After BF her, she can still down as much as 5 oz of formula. Even the formula amounts seem high to me, let alone combining it with what I am BF her.
Has anyone had any experience with this? I am home with her except for 2 mornings a week when I am at school - so I have the time to BF - but it just seems like a slippery slope towards weaning.
Any help and wisdom is much appreciated!
