Update - success story!
I was thinking about this thread today and how far we have come! I had to supplement with the pumped milk a while, first by cup, then at 3 weeks switched to using a bottle (with specific instructions from the LC on how to work his mouth, tongue and lips with the bottle nipple to ensure good "latch" and mouth position on the bottle.)
By 6 weeks he no longer needed any "topping off" with the pumped milk.
He is now 8 weeks and about 10 lbs. He has been gaining about an ounce a day for the past month. He did not need any formula and my supply seems just right.
Thanks to all of you who showed your support!
