I am looking for a way to increase my milk supply so that I can start breastfeeding my 7wk old. I was pumping at first because she was in the NICU after birth since she was born at 34wks5days. They were giving her a bottle and I was pumping. I tried to get her to latch on a couple of times and she did. However because she was so small, she didn't stay on for long. I started to give her formula more and pumped whenever I could. Basically when she would allow me to pump. Now the formula is making her very gassey and constipated and I want to go strictly to breastmilk. What can I do to increase my milk supply? It's only been 2 1/2 wks since I attempted to pump. I started to pump again today (and everyday I'd squeeze to see if milk was still there.). Any advice is welcome. It really upsets me to see her in such pain and discomfort.
Thanks in advance.
