I have a 3 week old -she was born at 37 wks with scheduled csection bc
of placenta previa. She was 6 lbs 1 oz at birth and went down to
5lb8oz at 1 wk up to 5lb10oz at wk 2 and was only gaining 1/3 oz per
day so the lactation consultant I met with suggested supplementing so
I've given her a few bottles a day since friday and yesterday she was
up to 6lb2oz.
But I want to try and get my supply up. *When I pump I only get about
an ounce. *And bf problem is that baby doesn't do that strong active
sucking long enough - she tires out. Other times she feeds n feeds but
never seems satisfied but if I give her a bottle she sucks down 2oz
and is so content. *I want her to continue to gain but hope to get
bfing to go better wo having to use formula - any suggestions?
