Yay! I'd love to know how that was accomplished (other than a lot of prayer, of course!)

Blessings,

Mrs. Whittemore,

It was( and still is) pumping around the clock and feeding him every thirty minutes to an hour. I am also adding a fourth of a teaspoon to a ounce of breast milk. I am look forward to putting the formula away when the doctor says it is ok to bring him back to the breast full time.

Spring Meadows Mama,

Thank you so much! I feel as though God has taken a load off my shoulders.

Hi Christa,

I used a nursing supplementer with my newborn due to complications until my milk came in. You can buy them from Medela. www.medela.com. They are able to drink the formula at your breast from a little thin tube. That way, they are getting the formula as well as stimulating your breast b/c they are suckling. It was a blessing to use. Just an idea...

God bless your family

Hi again,

Here is the link..

FYI:-)

I found this worked so well, almost better than the pump! Nothing like the babies sucking to help milk come in. If you use it and also pump, you'll have more milk than you know what to do with...lol.

Best wishes
