When I pump it takes 4 ever for my br___t's to fill back up. At least it seems that way. My son gets frustrated then like he's not getting eough, is this normal?

Don't get frustrated Karen. How long have you been b___stfeeding? If you are a new mom, myabe the milk suppyl isn't all in yet? I know when I had my son, I couldn't keep up with him. It seemed as though he was always hungry and I ended up having to supplement with formula. I m hoping this one is different (I am 20 weeks along now). They do say that stress and not enough of water will make the milk supply run low also. Just keep at it and it should all be okay. I hope it works out for you!

Sometimes your letdown is simply slow. I had that problem for a couple weeks. Relaxing and letting things happen helped a lot with that. Hang in there. It does get better.
