So glad you're going to a meeting I met an LC through the hospital and she runs an organization in my state so I go to her meetings- and I know BF centers run meetings, too (point being, if you don' t like this LLL meeting- try another!)

I'd explore the reflux as already said-- I know many moms who've had great results after figuring that out. I'd think about a new pedi if you're on the wrong foot already-- I am NOT a medical professional, but an skeptical of his insistence on formula to solve a weight problem you don't currently see as a problem. (I would never tell anyone they shouldn't use formula, though)

Good luck with your sweet baby!
