i am ready to give up. my baby is 3 1/2 weeks. The second visit with dr. He said supplement because she had lost almost 16 ozf from her 8 pounds at birth. I nursed her every 2 hrs, no pumping. After the visit I bf. then pump every 2hrs. Then I give her 2-3 ozformula. Now my mill seems less and I am so upset, I just want to give up!!! Should I listen to the dr or what. My lactation nurse did not agree with the dr, but toldme he is your dr so you will have to listen to him. Maybe my baby does not suckle well or strong enough.....what do I do now??? How can I go back and make it work without hurting my baby?
I am new to these forums and maybe I am in the wrong group...should be NEWBorns
