Re: low milk supply - have to supplement with formula
Well...my baby FINALLY gained some weight. This is week 8 and she is now 9.6lbs. I met with the LC last week who said that it while my supply has increased it is possible that my increase will not meet the demand of my LO...which is very true.
I'm giving my LO as much as she asks for after BF...which is usually 2 oz. I'm also using donated milk, and pumping at night (while she is sleeping). I know that my LO is almost exclusively breastfed, but...she needs to be healthy and my breastmilk surely isn't cutting it. My baby is fussy because of slow-letdown as well as the milk spraying in her throat. I'm not giving up but I feel like formula/donated breastmilk is better than me not giving her anything.
