    I broke down and sobbed tonight.

    I've been feeding her the whole day. At about 730 she won't stop crying and I'm not sure why I thought I'd better check my milk level. So I expressed. I did 10 min of each boob and nothing. I got no milk at all. At this point she's due for a feed and my body couldn't produce what she needs. I cried and cried.

    I was so upset. I know it will be hard but it's not supposed to be dry. I have been feeding more than regularly.

    We gave Bub some formula. Wasn't going to let her cry for an hour or two waiting for my milk.

    I am so sorry to hear @Minib. I thought bub can extract the milk more efficiently than the pump.......don't beat yourself up for it. You are doing great. You have the will to do it and will pay off for sure.

    I don't have any advice because I am a failed example. The breast feeding association generally has good advices. I tried them once when i had a blocked duct.

    Hugs, xx

    Hugs @Minib no doubt breastfeeding is super hard. But even tho you express nothing there's still milk there that Bub can extract. You're never empty apparently but I know I can be. Joys of low supply. Don't feel bad giving Bub some formula. I read somewhere that 'fed is best'

    Bub was a horror today and I've realised why. All his poops have been green which mean he's getting hungry faster cos he's not getting the fatty milk. Not sure why maybe cos I've been expressing after each feed and getting rid of the fatty milk? I've not changed the way I feed him although he wasn't sucking well this morning. Kept fussing and crying. Now I know why he needed so many extra feeds today and wouldn't sleep long. He kept drinking watery fore milk. Sigh.

    Oh @Gelati I have read about the fore and hind milk. Hugs you had s bad day too.

    Will you stop expressing and just let him suck longer?

    I think poo colour can change? Bub is formula fed as you all know. I was so concerned that his poo was green for several days. I started thinking lactose overload And intolerance. It can't be.....we are feeding less these days. It is now back to mustard colour.
    @Gelati: maybe feeding longer per breast?
