Breastfeeding Moms Breastfeeding Moms

Six ounces in three months.

Posted by   + Show Post

I have been ebf my LO and she has only gained six ouncs in three months. She is almost nine months. Dh is pushing to start formula and continue to breast feed as well.. The doctor really wants us to.

i know breast milk is best, but I feel so bad she gained spittle. She has good diaper count, meeting all milestones she is crawling and pulling up. She is super happy, any suggestion in diet change for me! 

Please no negativity! Thanks!

My thoughts exactly. It's normal for weight gain to slow and even plateau after 6 months. Her weight is fine, her diapers are fine, and she is meeting milestones. She is fine and so is your supply.

Quoting aehanrahan:

Your supply is NOT an issue as evidenced by the diaper count!
