I have read mixed reviews about this formula. Have you used it? Do you have any feedback??
I am currently nursing my 5 month old, but am 3 months pregnant and my milk supply is very low. I know I should start supplementing, but just not sure what to go with.

You may be able to get breast milk from the web site milkshare. The World Health Organization considers milk from another mother much better than formula. Milk from milk banks is hard to get and crazy expensive.
You could go ahead and start solids. That may be enough with your milk. If you decide to go with formula, Natures One is the leading organic formula. Goat's milk is not safe as an alternative to formula. Research it - go to google. Read about the problems in Europe. Goat's milk or any mammal milk should not be given before 12 mo.

People like mom2LandL just don't understand. It is very hard for mothers who want to breastfeed and find themselves in a situation that they don't have enough milk. What's best for every child, no matter what mother they happen to be born to or what family they live in, is breastfeeding. Children that aren't breastfed have short and long-term health consequences. It impacts their lives forever. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not there. You can't see the impact of many bad health behaviors (like how a smokers lungs look).
It's great that anon is nursing through a pregnancy and she can keep on nursing and nurse both babies.

That much weight loss is a concern. You don't need to pump for cereal, breastfed babies don't need cereal. You can give her fork mashed sweet potato and add some butter or olive oil for added calories. Avocados are high in calories and you can add olive oil to them. Most fruits and veggies are low in fat and calories but you can add high quality fat to up the calories.
If there are no allergies in the family and there has been no problems with you having milk in your diet and your milk you could start whole milk yogurt or cheese after 6 mo - they are high in fat and calories.
What did the doctor say?

avocado is the main ingredient in guacamole. It's an oil rich fruit.
