Today was Ds2 5 day check up. He has lost 9.5% of birth weight. I have to go back in tomorrow. They are having me supplement with formula for 24 hours. ack! he is a sleepy baby, and I realized that I have been making some mistakes. I nursed my 16 month old through the pregnancy and had massive oversupply when he was ebf. So now I have been doing 12 hour block feedings and let Ds2 feed on demand and as per the lc ok let baby sleep 4/5 hours at night before waking him to eat. Damn it I feel horrible! we have another weight check tomorrow plus a consultation with another lc and I did a pump test my milk is no where near being oversupply. Its actually on the low side. Advice? I have my alarm set for every hour and a half switching breasts each feeding and one feeding breast one formula. Help me kick this formula to the curb ladies and get baby totally back on the boob!
