My son is 6 weeks old and is breastfed exclusively. His birth weight was 3.9440kg and he weighed 3.58 kg after 5 days. His weight is 4.5 kg now after 6weeks and I am advised by doc that I start giving him 60ml of formula once a day as his weight gain is less. He is wetting around 8-10 diapers a day and is passing stools 1-2 times. I am feeding him every 45 mins when he is awake. Wondering whether it is really necessary to start formula this early? Any suggestions are welcome.
