So I took little one in today for her appt. She only gained 6 oz in 3 1/2 weeks. I feel like such a failure. She's still in the "normal" range, but she dropped from the 32 percentile to the 14.
Now the doctor thinks I should feed her 3 oz a feeding, and I'm lucky if I pump that much! He says I should supplement 2 feedings with formula. I suppose I could live bottle to bottle and stop trying to build up a stash. I don't know what to do.
I just want to cry I'm so frustrated. I keep reading about mothers pumping 4+ oz at a time and it just makes me want to cry! I feel like such a failure to our little girl.
