Best wishes & congratulations!"i am 2 weeks pp and im in the same boat as OP. you have seriously helped a lot in all that you wrote. ty so much. my baby has been pretty much only on formula, with an oz of breastmilk, because he takes more than an oz. & thats all i produce, but i havent been pumping like i should be, he eats 3 every2-3 hrs. im now trying to just breastfeed him via nipple shield. its very challenging, but your post has made me that more determined to stick with it and not give into formula when its soo tempting, when baby is srceaming and we're both frustrated.
