So I was doubting myself and the ability to make enough milk for my baby. I have no formula or pacifiers in my house and have only been BFing on demand and pumping when he sleeps for more than an hour. I was getting practically drops at first but now I can get a full oz! And even tho I'm not leakin at all which is weird for me or feeling a let down , when my baby nurses now he is chugging I can tell its almost choking him out sometimes! I think I'm gonna be able to EBF! By now I had supplemented with my other kids and stuff. Just happy! And thankful for the support I got from BG Mommas. THANK YOU!

I'm glad it's working for you :D



Pumps don't work nearly as well as a baby does, so don't ever use that to gauge your supply. My baby only eats on one breast a feeding and takes about 7oz at s time, but i only pump about 4oz from the other breast.
