Hi, I've read many posts from this board in the past, but this is my 1st time posting. My LO is 10 mos old. We EBF and started solids gradually at 6 mos. At his 9 mo appt, he weighed around 21 lbs, and 29.5 in long. A month later I weighed him at home by stepping on the scale, and he hadn't gained any weight. In fact he even lost several oz.
Also, I work part of the day 2 days out of the week and am pumping much less. I know pumping output doesn't give a good indication of supply, but it's still worrisome. After a 4 hr wait, I used to pump 7-8 oz, but lately it has been 5 oz. ( I have some BM saved in the freezer, so I'm not worried about him having enough during the little time I work.)
So, I don't know if he needs a little extra formula at this point, or more solids like yogurt. He breastfeeds 6-7 times a day, and 1-2 times at night. Avg 5-10 min a side, but some of these are comfort nursings to fall asleep.
For solids (always after BFing), he has a half a jar of stage 2 or 3 meat combo in the morning, half a yobaby yogurt and half a jar of fruit or veggie in the afternoon, and half a jar of fruit or veggie mixed with baby oatmeal in the evening, plus tastes of what we're having. He'll aso eat a few puffs, cheerios, or diced veggies, but he's not a big table food eater yet. He has sips of water from a cup or straw, but not too much.
Should he be eating more or fewer solids? Do you think he needs to have a little formula at this point to help with his weight? Should I try to increase my milk supply?
