Comment on Feed The Baby: When Supplementing Saves Breastfeeding by Tricia.
Thank you for this post! I was diagnosed with delayed lactogenesis and poor hormonal response since birth when my little guy was born 6+ weeks early. He didn’t have the energy to breastfeed all day and wasn’t gaining weight. I never had any indication that my milk was “coming in” and he had his very first positive post breastfeeding weight at 8 weeks! Needless to say, we needed to feed my baby and that’s what we did! I pumped 10 times a day to get 5-6 ounces and then supplemented with formula. Today he is a healthy 8 month old who loves to nurse! He gets every drop of breastmilk I can provide (which is about 5-6 ounces in 6 pumpings a day) and formula helps me feed him.
