    lllmeg,

    This is our regular pediatrician, the one from the hospital only works there and not in the clinic. I am trying to get him into a different pediatric clinic that I have heard good things...

    Re: Breast to Bottle Question??????

    I really like the Calma bottle by Medela. It is supposed to simulate breastfeeding and my 7 week old goes between it and the breast easily. Good Luck!

  9. Re: Pediatrician Told Me To Stop Breastfeeding

    lllmeg,

    The weight concern was raised within the first week. The dr delayed his circumcision to 2 weeks bc of the weight concern. I was told by the dr that a 10% weight loss was where they drew...

    alilwest,

    I agree. I think that we are overfeeding him, but I am not sure what to do when he doesn't gain weight. I have been trying to do what the pediatrician tells us to, but I feel like we...

  13. Re: Pediatrician Told Me To Stop Breastfeeding

    I have considered seeking out a 2nd opinion from a different pediatric group bc all the pediatricians and LCs in our current group seem to agree that I should stop nursing him.

    We did the before...
