Hi! I'm new here but was hoping to get more info than the kellymom guide to weaning from supplements. I would like real mom advice /help.
Backstory: we started off pretty good with a great latch but he wasn't efficient with emptying the breast. We did compressions but he still wouldn't gain much weight. I had no support so I was convinced by family and pedi that he was starving. Reluctantly I started supplementing with formula. That's the worst decision I ever made and I'm beating myself up over it. Now about half his feedings are formula. I'm trying to slowly wean but he's at atleast 15oz a day. I need help/support/advice. I really had my heart set on BFing long term. He's 3 months now. I will do anything at this point. I don't have insurance so I can't really see the local BF specialist right now. The main thing I need to do is stand up to my family and tell them to shove their opinions. Then I need to work on rebuilding my supply and get him back to breast more. Please help me! I have so much regret for starting supplements and allowing other people to voice their opinion in my decisions! But even hubby isn't very supportive.
