Different for everybody

For me I barely produced any milk, so in the end it was not even worth trying to squeeze out the half an ounce every few hours. My son was barely getting 3-4 ounces of breast milk a day and the rest was in formula so I decided to stop, and within a day or two that was it. It had been gradually getting to be less and less anyway but I'm sure for mothers that are able to breastfeed it may take a lot longer.

    I agree that breastfeeding is a very individual thing. there is no set plan that works for everyone. My advice is at least try it and see what happens... if it does not happen it is OK... i know some moms who get down on themselves for not being able to nurse for various reasons ... but the most important thing is that it is not their fault and it is OK to give a baby formula!
