Re: What do I do if I don't have enough milk?!?

He is nursing all the time to increase your supply! Let him nurse as often and for as long as he wants to. Don't supplement with formula, as this will make the problem worse (he will get full, won't nurse as much, and your supply will not increase). See if you can contact someone locally who can help you, maybe help with any latching problems, and basically boost your confidence? Babies were born to breastfeed! Your body knows what to do, if you let it!

My babe, now 8 months old, nursed every 90 minutes round the clock for about 5 weeks!!
