As much as I don't want to, I see no option but to start supplementing Avery with bottles of formula so she will eat when I'm not around. I make enough milk for her, but just can't seem to pump enough anymore to make even 1 bottle a day. The most I can get is 2 oz and that's both sides combined. I bought some fenugreek and am giving it until Avery's next appt the end of the month. If I'm not making enough to pump at least 1 bottle a day I'm going to have to start supplementing. My problem is I don't make enough to give her a bottle every day so when she does have to have a bottle while I'm working she just cries and cries until I get back and let her nurse. It's not fair to her or my mom having to listen to her cry knowing she's hungry. It breaks my heart to do it but I really think at this point it's in her best interest. If I could be a SAHM it wouldn't be an issue. Maybe one day somebody will just give me $5 million so I can stay home.
