Re: Slow weight gain. Pediatrician wants us to supplement. Opinions?
We've been going through lots of the same things & are supplementing too. It's totally ok to supplement, even though it feels kind of like failure. My baby was born 8lbs 15oz and dropped down to 7lbs 5oz by 1 week old. He did have an anterior tongue tie, which we had clipped, but we're still having to supplement. However, he also had a posterior tongue tie which wasn't discovered until he was 9 weeks old. Many people can't recognize posterior ties so you may want to get a second opinion on that. Does nursing hurt or are your nipples misshapen after?
