Hi, I have a 4-month old son and I started going back to work in the beginning of January so he started bottle feeding expressed milk I pump at work.
He was already being fussy when breastfeeding so I was struggling but now he seems to be distracted so he doesn't eat much on my breast.
At his 2 month check up his weight was on 65th percentile and now he's on 30th. (Height and head are both growing nicely) So I was told by his ped to try feed an oz more everyday. I have been every 2 hrs at least and 1-1.5 hrs when he's still awake and/or possible.
My husband is the caregiver while I'm at work and he thinks baby eats better from the bottle so he wants to bottle feed if he's fussy breastfeeding but I don't want to do that because I'm worried about the supply and I also would feel like i am rejected.
We don't know if he's really eating more from the bottle or he's just less fussy with the bottle...
I pump about 16-18oz at work and he eats 15-16oz usually. I would like to keep my supply and our bond with the baby during nursing but should I still bottle feed when I'm home and can breastfeed for him to grow??
I really appreciate your help...
