Hi Anon,your newborn doesnt know how to latch. Hold him in a comfortable position,put your entire aerola in his mouth and keep holding there for atleast 15 mins. Latch him in every 2 hrs,your milk supply will increase. As much and as ling ur baby will suckle,your body will get cues to increase milk supply. And plz try and restrict formula( dont give it all the time) as it will only increase babys stomach size again difficult for u to catch up. Have good meal,protein rich,green veggies. Drink atleast 8 glasses of water and other liquids like soup,coconut water,thus will help increase milk prod. Add jeera to everything,sounf,ajwain,all these help in lactation. And read these articles,pretty helpful! Happy feeding!

Hi.. u and baby both are new to each other.. so babies take time to latch.. keep trying to feed and keep baby close to you.. always first try breastfeed if no luck then give formula... All d best
