Sooo. Our paed appointment was today after LO's lack of weight gain and weight loss. As I posted last week, after a week of two hourly feeding LO gained four ounces. But after a second week of two hourly feeding LO has LOST three ounces. The paedatrician examined him and said he has no worries about his general health but has taken blood to test and see if he is hypothyroid (I have this, he was tested at birth but they want to double check). He has said he will phone me when the results come in. He has said its possible that LO might just not be getting enough calories. He also said he understands that its practically the opposite of what i've been told but that it might be in LO's best interests to either wean early or to give some formula. He said me and DH should have a talk about it and see how we feel about both options. I havent decided yet but was wondering, for those of you who combi feed, how many bottles do you give and how often? did it harm your supply or were you able to continue bfing well at other times.? what times of the day do you give your formula? Is it better to give top ups after a feed or replace a whole feed with formula? thanks in advance for any advice.
