Re: 92nd percentile to 9th percentile in 8 week old infant
I can understand why you're scared, mama. Hopefully this is just a little hiccup in your breastfeeding journey, and all will soon be back on track.
I forget- are you pumping much right now? If you have sufficient expressed milk, you could supplement with that instead of formula. There's nothing superior about formula, when it comes to supplementing for slow weight gain.
It sounds like your plan is to supplement just 2x per day, offering 4 oz per time for a total of 8 oz. Correct? If so, those are going to be large supplemental bottles and I wouldn't be surprised if your baby won't drink that much at one time. You might need to do a few more daily bottles, albeit smaller ones.
After supplementing, it is often helpful to out the baby back on the breast for more nursing. This technique is called "finish at the breast" and it can help your baby retain the sense that the breast is what provides the feeling of satiation and relaxation, not the bottle.
