I'm at a loss. My son was born 8 pounds 11 oz and at his first check he is 7 pounds 7 oz. They said we had to supplement. I hav nursed 3 other children until they were 24, 23 and 20 months old with no problem. I have nursed On demand to every two hours. They have us giving an oz of formula after each feeding because he is severely jaundice. They wanted to readmit to hospital. I'm noticing his suck and time at the breast is decreasing because I assume how easy it is to get the oz from bottle. If I get anything from pumping which I'm not more than 10 ml I'm adding it to his bottles. When the lactation result weighed him after he nursed he only got.3 an ounce from each side. Help ladies I don't want to have to formula feed my 4 the baby.
I decided to atop the supplement. He has a weight appt. Friday and if I continue to supplement idk howvi will see what my supply issue is. If he loses weight we will use a sfs and if he maintains or gains I will know my supply is better. I am feeling pain during latch on. He may have a shallowvlatch. Its something I'll keep am eye on I guess.bitbkinda feels like what nursing fwltvlike during second trimester o this pregnancy woh my toddler.
