Hi, with the holidays I am posting this hoping to get some information until I can talk to my physician.
I am going into my 5th day with no mil as of yet. My newborn needs to eat as he is jaundiced and his levels are going up which can happen if hes not getting enough. He has not had a poopy diaper as of today and only 2 wet diapers. Is it ok to supplement every other feeding or a few times a day until I can speak with someone about this. He is nursing about every 10 x a day but Im concerned about how much colustrum (sp) he is getting if any. He seems tired after each feeding and sleeps immediately and almost all day. Today I gave him a bit of formula and he ate it right away and stayed alert and bright eyed for over an hour.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
