No supply?

I just had my second baby, he’s 3 days old. I know milk takes time to actually come in but every time I try to hand express or pump I literally get nothing not even a drop.

Breastfeeding struggles

Baby had tongue tie division today (it has improved latching a lot) but I’m still struggling. Baby will have a long feed on breasts(like 1.5 hours at a time) and not get full at all and is having a full feed of formula after just to get full. Can someone please tell me where I’m going wrong? Baby is 16 days old

Nipple refusal/frustration

He re-latches but then gets frustrated again. He gives me all the cues that he’s hungry. I’ve tried swapping br...
