I wanted to exclusively breastfeed my babe for as long as possible. For the past month my three month old son only gained 4 oz. He nurses round the clock and can't really go two hours at night without needing food. He is very fussy in the evening when my supply is at lowest and he's never ever fussy for no reason.
Obviously I don't make enough milk to satisfy him. I've tried to increase my supply to no avail. Please don't judge I just need advice on how to supplement. Ideally I'd like to continue nursing but add a bottle of formula to help him gain weight. DS knows how to suck from a bottle so that's not the problem, the problem is he absolutely will not drink an ounce of formula no matter what. I've tried three different dry brands and one pre-made and he won't take anything. Please help as he's not gaining weigh and I'm very concerned.
