Re: Help! I can't make a decision regarding supplimenting
Can you use a supplemental nurser? (So it doesn't effect your nursing or give you supply issues?)
You can make them easy with a butterfly (this is a type of needle) and a screw on syringe. Ask your doctor for them as every office has these. (You remove the needle from the butterfly and discard. You just want the plastic tubing. and put formula in the syringe. Hook the (tubing from the butterfly) to the syringe. tape the tube to your breast 3to 4 inches from the nipple so the end of the tube is long enough it will fit in the baby's mouth when BFing. As you BF, gently squeeze on the syringe giving 1/4 oz or less at a time.
