That's all a misconception Cortney. Babies bellies are the size of a marble at this age. They don't need your "milk to be in". a teaspoon of colostrum (which you certainly have) is enough. Your milk won't really "come in" unless you're feeding and pumping every 2-3 hours. Also, babies will take significantly more formula than they need, stretching their bellies, and making them get used to the quick flow of the bottle and they refuse the breast even more because it's more work for them. They will drink 2oz of formula and then proceed to puke up an ounce because they overfed. And the smell of regurgitated formula is enough to make me regurgitate. LOL
