I am pumping to feed my baby breast milk but also using formula. (i'm not producing enough). Should I do breast milk only and formula only bottles?
I would: I don't have science behind this, but i don't know if mixing breast milk and formula will break down the good proteins in either liquid. I'm probably being overly cautious with this recommendation. So, if it was my baby, i wouldn't mix. Hope that helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Pediatrician suggests to wake up my 16 weeks baby by night n breast feed every 3 hr.I used to do till 13 weeks. Does this decrease milk production?
Breastfeeding: After the first couple months of life, we do not generally tell you to wake up your baby to feed. At this age, your baby should be sleeping more through the night. I would not recommend waking your baby up to feed. You will usually be able to continue with milk production without having to feed constantly during the night! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

After several bottle feedings(pumped breastmilk) my 3 months old does not stay attached to breast.if i switch to pumping does it reduce milk supply?
Not really : Your breasts have a biochemical servomechanism so that if your kid (or the pump) sucks out say 2.5 ounces then the breast fills itself up with an additional 2.5 ounces. He may have a weak suck, he may have a tongue-tie. Best thing to do is just check weight gain. Can do that at doc's office. If growing well then child is getting enough food. ...Read more
Possible sensitivity: It may be that you may be sensitive or allergic to milk products. Seek professional help. ...Read more
My 2 week old baby can't seem to get full when i breast feed him, but i produce enough milk for each feed when i pump. Any suggestions?
Full ?: Breast feeding is both eating and nurturing.Babies lips are filled with pleasure sensors that make it feel good to feed, so the ones that like the nurturing can stay at the breast for as long as you allow and will suck fingers to enjoy the pleasure.Sucking does not mean hunger, an empty stomach does.Please do not confuse the two.More than 15 min on a side is nurturing ; suckling is pleasure. ...Read more

More info needed: Is he growing well? Is he voiding and stooling? Are you trying to feed him on a schedule or letting him feed on demand? I would be reassured if he is growing peeing and pooping and just wants to feed on his time. If you are still concerned have the doctor check him. ...Read more
