Re: Supply and feeding at night only
Mama, is her weight actually dropping, or is she continuing to grow but just at a slower pace? The reason I ask is that many breastfed babies begin to drop percentiles around the 4-6 month mark. It's generally a normal consequence of the baby putting more calories into action (reaching, rolling, kicking, standing, crawling, etc.) and allocating fewer to fat. A lot of pediatricians do not realize that this is a normal pattern for breastfed babies, and when a baby- for example- declines from the 50th %ile to the 25th %ile they go into panic mode and prescribe formula. I'm not saying that is what has happened with your baby- obviously I don't know! But if that sounds possible, then maybe we should talk more about what's normal for breastfeeding and when formula is an appropriate response to an issue with weight gain.
