recently dd went from 3-5 bowel movements a day to only 1, sometimes 2 every other day and boy are they massive! there is no diaper that can hold what she puts out! her wets range from 8-10 a day sometimes a little less. her ped only had us supplementing up until that third week, after she had gained the 12 1/2 he just said she was gaining well. i was so afraid to stop supplementing all together so i just cut down to only 1 or 2 bottles a day.
after i see a consultant i'm definetly going to try to ween her off of the formula because if i'm making enough milk for her then i don't want to supplement.
also i had a blockage in one of my breasts a couple of weeks ago and i suspected it was from all the suppelmenting i did in the first few weeks of her life!
i wish more doctors would encourage you and give you information(or at least point you in the direction of the LLL so you can get the info you need, instead of just telling you to supplement.)
