Hello again ...I think I should change my alias to Paranoidmamma!!! OK so Eleanor has been doing well with reducing supplementation. Over the last few days she was down to 6oz formula per day BUT I just got a cold and coincidentally she seems to need 9oz a day again now...I'm not taking any meds and I'm pumping/feeding just as much. Just feeling ill and v tired. Could this cold be responsible for my milk supply going down again.
A separate question is that of weight gain. Eleanor has been peeing and pooping as normal (she only poops about once a week anyhow but pees at least 8 times a day) but she hasn't gained any weight in the past week. Should I be concerned. She usually gains at least 3oz a week and that has always helped me stay confident about reducing formula. Would you go as far as weighing wet diapers to determine the exact amount of output....or am I just getting too obsessed?
