Re: Losing BF Support, small baby, not sleeping long

My ODS was always at 20% or less for weight and 75th - 95th % for height. So he was long and skinny. He's now a very active, healthy and happy 2 1/2 YO who is off the charts tall and in the 75th % for weight.

Sounds like maybe you are having a supply issue that needs to be addressed. I know it's tough to believe, but supplementing w/a bottle, even a bottle of FF, won't hurt your nursing relationship at this stage. Just have DH or someone else give her the bottle. If you can, try to give her EBM. But please see someone about your supply if you feel it might be falling short of her needs.

Good luck Mama! Hang tough!
