Had to switch to formula instead of breast because I wasn’t producing enough.

I gave birth to a handsome baby boy two months ago. It was c section and I was not producing milk at all. My dr suggested a lactation consultant she gave me some tips. She put a nipple shield on my nipple and inserted a tiny little pipe in it she told pour the formula milk in the nipple shield with the help of pipe which was connected to a syringe. My baby latched the nipple and thought it is a breast milk believe me the same night I produced milk and I was leaking alot. So my baby was on formula only for few hours. He is still on bf and even I m able to freeze some milk as well. Try this tip I hope you will be able to produce.

I did the same and continued pumping to stimulate production and it worked and was able to stop formula

I struggled as well and couldn't bf my first and fought hard to bf my 2nd and had to supplement here and there in the beginning too. Keep pumping and trying and get the support u need and it will happen if u want it to. It is tough, but milk supply takes awhile to come in at first anyway that is normal. If u can use a hospital grade pump they work great and do it every hour or so to stimulate and the milk will come in very soon. Trust me. Also, drink a Guinness beer. 😘 Goodluck momma.

You can do it Mama! If BF is important to u then offer breast b4 the formula, & pump right after the complete feeding, every time if possible. Your milk will come in! Keep up the good work, you & your baby will be so happy you did!😊👍🏼
