I had a feeling this was going to happen, but I just went to Landon's 6 months check up, and low and behold - he only gained 1/2lb in 2 hrs. The same exact thing happened with Carson at his 6 months check up, and I ended up stopping nursing b/c I didn't understand and he certainly wasn't getting enough.
Could it be that my body doesn't produce enough after a longer time? Could I not being eating enough or the right thing? What can I do to help? Even last week I nursed him so much and taht didn't seem to help. He eats like crazy and often enough and long enough. The doc said that was the problem but I really don't think it is. I can tell when he runs out of milk, and he keeps sucking but not swallowing, and he would stay there forever, but he just isn't getting anymore.
Doctor told me to start supplementing after each feeding, but that is going to get pretty time consuming pretty quickly. Should I stop exercising? ( I really don't want to do that!!!)
I don't get it. I have never done anything except for breastfeed, and I even waited longer to start cereal thinking that would help. But it didn't :(
Just want to know what everyone's thought out there are :) (please be nice :))
