Re: Slow weight gain. Pediatrician wants us to supplement. Opinions?

This has all been great advice! I think if you start to feed overnight you will start to see a huge change. I had a rather large newborn so my ped was never worried about weight gain so I could let him sleep as long as he wanted at night, but he didnt sleep through the night (7-5am) until he was 6 months old. He always woke up at least once or twice before 5am.

I also had to supplement with my son and was able to go back to full breast feeding by the time he was 3 months so hopefully once your babe gains well you will have similar success.
