Asked a question last year

My 3 months old baby is in both breastfeed as well as formula by bottle. My baby doesn't open her mouth to breastfeed when she is sleeping but bottle nipple she takes easily. Because of that my milk supply goes down. I'm not able to take out much milk from my electric breast pump. Please suggest on how to feed a sleeping Baby as well as any suggestion on how to maximize output from Medela swing electric breast pump.

Where am I?

Hello Smriti,

Exclusive breastfeeding on demands helps to get more milk. Bottle feeding is not recommended as baby gets nipple confused and flow confused too.

Frequent and complete breast drainage will help to improve your milk  supply.

I would suggest you to meet a Lactation Consultant who can help to bring baby on direct breastfeeding and help you to improve your milk supply.

Take care.
