- How often do you pump?
- How much is baby eating at each feeding? How old is baby?
- Do you supplement? How much?

I can't seem to get on a schedule where I have pumped before Eli eats every time. I'm still supplementing which I am okay with, but I would be doing better if I could get on a better pumping schedule.

Eli is 17 days old. I'm getting between 1.5 - 2.5 oz total when I pump. He usually eats at least 3 oz every 2-3 hrs. So I supplement the difference. I'm taking fenugreek and I use the medela freestyle. Is 3oz a normal amount for him to eat at 17 days?

I need some advice. **If you are wondering why I am pumping instead of letting him latch on, it's just what works best for us as a family.

I would LOVE to be able to pump enough to feed Eli and store some. It just doesn't seem to be in the cards for me to even be able to feed him without supplementing. What's wrong with my body?
