Another Update ~ DD weight check at bottom!

A week ago today my dd's ped told me to start supplementing because she was losing weight. I didn't. Instead took measures to bring my milk supply up and added in a breakfast of solids for her (she was only getting solids at night.) She is doing a MILLION times better now. Thanks for all the advice and encouragement ladies, I literally don't think I could have gotten through it without you. Everyone in my house was basically telling me I was a bad mother for NOT giving my daughter formula.

I would guess she's gained nearly a pound in this last week...suddenly chubbed out again and some of her diapers are getting tight again (she was switching to L's and moved back to M's when she lost the weight)

Now if I can just get rid of this dipe rash so she stops needing to be changed EVERYtime she pees at night...we'd be doing great.

Anyways, thanks again ladies, you are great

Good Job! I know personally how hard it is when everyone wants you to give formula but you have a conviction not to. It is rough but you did it and will be blessed for that Mamma!
