So, LO is 13 days old and is still a bit below his birthweight. -Midwife advised me to top-up with ebm every feed -Breastfeeding advisor at hospital advised to top-up with ebm just twice a day -Health visitor says too early to express so I should either just stick to the breastfeeding as much as possible, but if I wanted I could top-up with formula What do I do?? My LO is 5 lb 14 oz at 2 weeks old, birthweight 6 lb 4 oz. I was unsuccessful bf my first baby, loss of 15% birthweight by day 8 then topped-up with formula (as expressing didnt work!) and then just switched to formula only from around 2wks old . I am hoping to exclusively breastfeed but I do need his weight up so that they can discharge me and leave us to it! Over the last 2 days I have breastfed as normal, on demand, and waking baby if he goes over 4 hrs (which he only does once a day!) I have expressed twice yesterday, managed to get 1 oz each time and topped-up with that plus 1oz formula couple times yesterday. He has gained 2 oz in weight over the last 3 days. What should I do?? Any advice?? When I bf, he is awake, sucking happily for around 15mins then gets sleepy, but still sucks - not sure if LO gets anything when doing this though!
