Re: Help! I can't make a decision regarding supplimenting
Just some advice from a momma that also had a LARGE baby. My little guy lost a pound in the hospital and as a first time mom I was SO scared! I know better now, but I don't regret supplementing with formula. I did exactly what your ped recommended. Nursed and then supplemented 1/2 oz at each feeding. He got up to 12 pounds by his 1 month. At that point, I could have gone back to just BFing easily and did until I weaned him at 4 months because I had to go back to work. Would do it differently now that I stay at home full time, but just letting you know that you could do this and then go back to EBF if you want to. I hope this helps! Whatever you think is best, is definitely best I just wanted to give you the other side of the coin.
