Try expressing the milk in cup and feed your baby with spoon from the milk cup. The most common reason why baby sucks in this fashion is because they cannot get enough milk out of the breast to satisfy their demand.

If you still can't express enough milk from both breast, the formula may be a choice.

DO NOT USE FEEDING BOTTLE as the teat of the bottle may harbour microbes that may cause diarrhea for your baby.
