just as it says. again. I know I posted about this before, but that WAS around growth spurt time (3 weeks).
my lo is 4wks ( and now 2 days) old. she's bottle fed breast milk and formula, and breastfed with a nipple shield ( we had to do it that way from day one since she was born tong tied- this issue has been corrected). we had an issue with weight gain early on, so hence why she's on formula, her LC and i agreed the bottle was the best delivery method for the supplimentation- she'd spit out al the other SNS's ( to the point shed even spit out the breast and not eat), hence the bottle being involved.
I'm under the impression that i haven't ever produced enough milk for her. Im taking supplements to help, but ts something i just roll with.
my concern is that, even with formula, she's seemed un satisfied. she's wanted to eat every hour since 2pm, and hasn't really napped that much (she had a big 5 hour nap prior to all of this that she was still in and out of ). she's had bottle and breast, but i haven't been able to pump like I normally do after a feeding. /\I'm following her cues. I'm assuming it she says she's hungry, she must be.
i am concerned about over eating, she gets 2 and a half ounces of formula and breast milk, and she drinks it all. she's also on the breast on an average of 20 minutes, sometimes longer- I'm feeding based on her visual cues, but she's packing it away, and wanting more!
