Re: Supplementing and diaper washing routine

I've met with two lactation consultants and am pumping as well as nursing on demand. I was told that my milk is not "fatty" enough and that supplementing with ebm and formula will help get him back to birth weight. He eats until he is full and has the right amount of diapers in a day...he's just gaining weight slowly. I also started taking "More Milk" to boost my milk supply, so hopefully that will help and in a week he will be where he needs to be for me to stop with formula. My ped recommended doing formula last week after feedings, but I wanted to try one more week on just bm...but with little luck
