    Yes, the compressions are good and also I would try a hot pad...like just a wash cloth dipped in hot water and lay it on your breast as he eats after let down. I found it usually helps the milk flow better. In some ways it's nice to miss out on the end of pregnancy but after having 2 early babies I can vouch for it not being the easiest road. They are usually not as awake or efficient feeders until they get a little older...I've felt this has been a symptom of being a bit early. Hope it improves soon and you can stop having to worry about supplementing.

    ETA: Your boss is a piece of work. How rude!!

    I had to really work at getting dd her milk supply. I would put warm washcloths on my breasts for 15 min b4 feeding her 10 minutes a side, then giving her 1 oz breast milk by bottle then pumping 30 minutes (10 min a side with a hand pump till my pump came in). I did this abt a month until my let down was good enough for her. Then I also messaged the milk out to help her during her nursing. In the end it really helped because I would still have to pump 4 times a day besides exclusively Brest feeding her till 7 months. I was a good cow I guess. Hope this helps maybe...

    Wow 2oz from 20 min of nursing is great! Pretty sure my kid can only get 1oz out of me at that rate. He's not an efficient nurser at all.
