My sleepy eater is still having trouble gaining weight. (He's 15 weeks and 11 lbs.) I finally called in a LC. She came and spent 2 hours with us. Basically, my guy is healthy, but she thinks that 1. he should gain some weight a little more quickly, and 2. that my supply is down because of his sleepy eating. So she suggested that 3 times per day, I try to feed him and then he gets a 3 oz bottle of EBM when he seems done with nursing (while I pump). At the last feeding of the day, I am not supposed to put him to my breast. Instead, he is supposed to get as much EBM as he wants to eat (while I pump). (Yesterday he ate about 6 oz that last time.) Is this right? I'm getting a ridiculously small amount of milk when I pump sometimes. (ridiculously small = 1 mL on one side one time! But I do occasionally get an entire ounce.) It seems to me that he should be trying to nurse more frequently, not skip a session, if I want to increase my supply. We have been trying this for 2 days now, and (if possible) he seems even less interested in breastfeeding than before! Sometimes he latches on, but instead of sucking, he stares off into space. Sometimes he sucks and then gets frustrated because nothing is coming out. Is he getting even lazier by taking so many bottles? I'm so frustrated! He was a happy, alert (if small) baby before this, but the past two days, I feel like he's having even more trouble at the breast, and he seems even sleepier. (He slept his first 8-hour stretch Tuesday night, which meant he missed ANOTHER session.) Any suggestions? Was the LC right, and I just haven't given it enough time? I want him to gain weight, but I also don't want him to get used to the ease of eating from a bottle so often.
