I've been struggling for a while with ebf my 4 month old girl. I started supplementing when she was about 1 month old. She was just getting 2 oz of formula per day and now, she is getting 8-10 oz per day. When she was born, she weighed 8 lb 15oz. Got down to 7 lb, had her tongue tie clipped and started gaining again. Yesterday at the dr. she weighed 12 lb 8oz. She is a happy baby and she sleeps well. My dr., who is very old school, said she's doing fine and we're on an upward curve. My IBCLC is concerned because looking over her past charts, she's only gaining 2-3 oz AT MOST a week.
I should mention that she is pretty addicted to the fast flow of a bottle and will only nurse well when sleepy or in the morning when my supply is at it's best. Oh and she usually has 1 good poo a day and several wets. I usually supplement 8 oz or so towards the end of the day in 3 oz increments. I'd love to get back to EBF but, my hope is really waning. Is it possible at this point? I feel like there's got to be another underlying issue but, I'm not pregnant, haven't started my period yet, not on birth control.
I guess, overall, my questions are:
1. is my girl gaining weight too slowly? is she too skinny?
2. if so, can I do something about it that doesn't involve more formula?!?
