My 8 1/2 month old daughter recently underwent some tests as she was apparently too small. She was well covered but just wasn't on the growth chart anymore. The specialist said that according to the growth chart she was failure to thrive but looking at her she was just a healthy small little girl. He asked that she be formula fed for two weeks to see if it was my supply and if she put on more than 200 grams a week then it was my breast milk. However she has only put on 100 grams a week which is what she was gaining breastfeeding. I now want to wean her off of the formula and back on breast but she doesn;t seem full from a brestfeed and I end up giving her a bottle afterwards any idea's on how to bring my supply up quickly would be greatly appreciated as I am feeling very incapable at the moment!
