Hi. My son and I are nursing, pumping, and supplementing. I have overactive letdown and low supply, and my son has gastroesophogal reflux disease (GERD). Right now we nurse at night, and I pump and bottle-feed all day, but I can't quite seem to pump enough for his growing demands. We average 4 oz a day of soy formula and I avoid all dairy, since he also has a dairy intolerance. Ethan Bradley is 4.5 months old and the best thing to ever happen to me!

Aaliyah has dairy allergies as well. You are lucky you are able to pump during the day and feed him it. I can't pump hardly anything and my supply is slowly dwindling out. I used to feed her formula 25% of the time, then 50, and now like 75. It's horrible, I hate it. But there is nothing I can do, that I am not already doing.
