My son was 2 weeks old yesterday and I have been exclusively bf him. He weighed 7.9 lbs at birth. I just took him to the drs for a 2-week check and now he weighs 7.5 lbs. He gained 1 oz from last week. The dr told me to start supplementing with formula after bf for 15 min on one side and offering the other side. I tried to do this and my son refuses the formula. If anyone was in this position and has some advice - it would be so appreciated. I love bf my son but now I am so concerned about his weight. I am even trying breast massage while he is feeding to ensure he is is taking in more of my milk. I noticed a difference - he was more satisfied after the feeding than he had been. Maybe I answered my own question. I just don't want my son to lose any more weight.
