Have you ever felt pressure to supplement, such as from a doctor?

Yes. When I had Logan he had jaundice pretty bad, which affected his stamina with nursing. The doctor suggested I supplement after I nurse him all day. It served a purpose, as he lost a lot of weight.

As far as doctors, I've been pressured more not to supplement. They act like I should just be able to pump more and get more. I've been pressured by a lot of family members to supplement. Some family members who I am close with actually give me a lot of grief for breastfeeding and pumping in the first place.
