I have 8 weeks old baby. for first 1 month i was breast feeding him exclusively. but he didn't gained weight, it was same 2.5 kg for 2 weeks.So Pediatrician told to feed formula milk too.
but I am looking forward to breastfeed alone successfully , gaining required weight. How this is possible?
Currently whenever baby feels hungry i breast feed for 20 mins or so and if he stops sucking then i will give him formula milk.
daily 2 times i express milk to about 1.5oz - 2oz.
I tried to feed with expressed milk one time a day of about 2-3oz taken in multiple session, but with that baby is not satisfied and then again i had to give formula milk.
Please provide me a solution on how to proceed so as to cut down the formula feed(currently 5-6 feeds of formula milk is given)
