Re: Dr might want to add formula at next appt.

I was told that 1/2 an oz of weight gain per day is healthy for a newborn...that sounds like close to what shes gaining...I also would get a second opinion if you are not comfortable supplementing with formula. It seems rather unnecessary if she eats at least 8 times a day. I would have to wake DD to eat when she was a newborn. Do you wake her every 2 1/2-3 hours from beginning of one feeding to beginning of the next? This is what was recommended to me. I would also consider contacting a leader of La Leche League if you would like more advice and support...those ladies are awesome!
