Re: need help fast!
My lactation consultant had me give only 10 ccs after nursing, via a supplementer (although when that didn't work for our little guy we used a bottle). My pediatrician said an ounce, too. We only had to do it for 24 hours and his bilirubin letters and weight were better. I'm not suggesting you go against doctor's advice, but I'm just sharing what we did. My LC said an ounce was too much, but that seems to be what doctors always tell you to give. I'd also nurse as frequently as possible.
