    I have to pump about 4 times just to get that much so my supply sucks, that's with the help or Maxalon too! I do try and pump at the same time each day.

    Thanks @mrsh1984 that's what I was thinking I'd need to do..... I'm on motilium but it gives me shocking headaches. Would love to attempt to wean off them soon. Yesterday little miss wasn't fussy at all on the boob so I'm hoping she'll just continue to breastfeed and with monitoring her weight weekly we might just get there with just the 1-2 bottles per day. It's bloody stressful not knowing how much she's getting though!

    I hate hate hate pumping so I've given that up, it is so time consuming and I made the decision I'd rather enjoy DD more and spend the time i was spending pumping cuddling and playing with her. At the start I had to pump after each feed so I felt like I was missing out on her as by the time I'd pump she was sound asleep and then I'd just have to feed again as soon as she woke up then do it all again. Was missing out on those snuggles without her being attached to my boob.
    Will you gradually wean onto formula or just stop breastfeeding and go fully to formula straight up? Do you know if there Is there a risk of mastitis if you just suddenly stop breastfeeding?
    I weaned my ds1 at 4.5 months and I had supply issues. I just cut down a feed for a few days and replaced with formula, then another etc until all formula. I didn't have to do much as I didn't have heaps of milk. I just made sure I massaged my boobs on the shower and expressed a little if I was uncomfortable.
