Re: Pediatrican suggests supplementing

I wouldn't do it personally. My son weighed 5. 14 at birth and was up to 18.7 at 6 months. By 9 months he had gone down to 18.2 and at 12 months he is still at 18.2. The Ped is fine with it and says that he is normal for a BF babe. He is very active and still BFs a lot. I wouldn't worry.

If I were you, given what you're told us in the post, I wouldn't supplement. Iff dd is acting satisfied with what she's getting I think you're fine.

And I love your avatar picture.

Re: Pediatrican suggests supplementing

if it were me, i would pump AFTER she finishes nursing to increase your supply; i would tell him to shove his formula. The minute you give something other than bm you risk reducing the demand for bm, and by extension, the supply for bm.

it would make more sense to start solids, than to start formula.
