My breastfed baby just turned 3 months old. She is exclusively breastfed except for one bottle of formula before she goes to bed at night. She was getting into the habit of having a very large BM every morning. However, this past week she has only gone once on her own. She has been to the doctors twice since and he has given her a suppository and she was able to go a lot within minutes. The doctor suggested that she might need to eat more and to give her an extra feeding of formula a day. I am very torn on what to do. I have been working so hard breastfeeding and I am not ready to give her another bottle of formula but of course I want to do what is best for her.
