Okay, I could use some serious encouragement and advice. I'm feeling beside myself right now. I just had my eight month old son weighed, and he weighed 17 lbs, 3 oz. He weighed over 18 pounds the last time I had him weighed three weeks ago. Granted, that was a different scale. But there has never been that big of a discrepancy between these two scales before. So basically, baby lost weight.
I'm feeling awful that I didn't notice it before, and I'm freaking out about what caused this. I feed on demand, but DS is so busy that it's hard to get him to slow down long enough to eat. We're meeting with the ped tomorrow, and I'm afraid she's going to tell me to supplement with formula. I really don't want to do this. Is this my only option? What else can I do? I'm feeling like such a failure and don't know what to do.
