I'll try to make this short. Anna latches like a pro, she went for it as soon as I was able to breastfeed her after she was born. She breastfed perfectly in the hospital, and we were released when she was 3 days old, having lost nearly a pound. We had to start supplementing because my milk still wasn't in on day 5. I still let her latch and suck until she was done and then I'd feed her the formula. She's over two weeks old and I just got my pump yesterday (stupid insurance). When I pumped both breasts, I got barely a teaspoon from them combined. I'm still on antibiotics and some low dose pain medications due to my infection, but I'm eating and drinking enough. I know I slacked off on having her latch and try to breastfeed before the bottle and I'm wondering if there's still hope for breastfeeding with my supply being obviously really low, even after 2 weeks.

Any ideas or advice would be great!
