My daughter is 5 months old now. I took her to the doctor and she was weighed and got shots. She only weighed 8 lbs 14 oz. AT 5 MONTHS!!! The doctor told me to stop Breastfeeding and force her to take the formula bottle she really doesnt want. I hurt even though I pump just enough to stop hurting every few hours. The first time I pumped though, there was only 4 oz. Thats not enough is it? My roomate, who breast fed all her kids and aided in her grandaughters breastfeeding told me that my milk is too watery it should be thicker but it looks like water with a tiny bit of milk in it. I dont want to stop breastfeeding but i also do not want them to put her in the hospital. They have already poked at her veins too much and now we have to go get a chest xray and more blood and a weight check tomarrow. I am afraid for my baby.
