I am a new mom to a 10 week old girl. I decided early on I wanted to breast feed and I feel like we got off to a great start. She latched on right away and seemed to know what she was doing. The first two weeks were perfect with feedings and I was so proud of us.
Week 3 and on she did not gain any weight and at 4 week check up she was starting to lose the weight, we were strictly breast feeding and I was told by my doctor that I should start supplementing. I wanted to do what was best for my little girl so I started supplementing after I breast fed. This has continued and now that she is at a normal weight I want to go back to just breast feeding if I can.
I fear by doing this I will be hurting her growth and development. Not sure what to do at this point but not ready to give up just yet.
Any one else in this boat?
