I have been trying everything from fenugreek, oatmeal, more milk plus, seaweed soup, added pumping and eating more fatty foods. My 11 week old son was gaining slowly but decent until in the last 3 weeks he had plateaued and now today lost a significant amount of weight. His doctor (who is very pro breastfeeding) has asked that I supplement with 1-2 ounces of formula after each feeding for the added calories. How do I not feel like a failure as a mother? I have been trying everything possible and as a stay at home mom it isn't like he isn't eating whenever he wants. I want him to be healthy so I'm going to do it....but how do I beat the depression I can feel coming on?
