I recd wonderful supportive advise four weeks ago on how to encourage baby to breast after refusing following traumatic head injury at birth. I've been EPing for the past 10 weeks and finally had success getting baby to bf in last 48 hours
I've been only bf in this time but he isn't having a great wet/dirty diaper count and that worries me. He used to have heavy wet diapers every 3-4hr feed and two large dirty ones a day. Now he's only had one large dirty diaper in 24 hrs and moderately wet every 5 hours
I'm not sure if I should still supplement bmilk as well as nursing. I really didn't want to but maybe I should. He was taking 5 oz bm from the bottle. I've pumped a few times and seem to have good supply and he's got a good latch and is swallowing.
He's feeding every 4 hours and starts strong for about 20 mins then gets sleepy and I fight another 20-40 mins with him.
Pls any advise would be appreciated. After working so incredibly hard to bf I want to be successful but not sure how to transition from EPing to exclusively BF
Pls help ASAP. thank you!!!!
