to be brief, i will say i have definitely had supply issues and am not a big producer. i have igt, and am on domperidone, which i find to really help my supply. i do still have to supplement my 6.5 month old, i never got a full supply in, even with the dom.
ds has been cutting two teeth, and so, has been very hard to settle at times on the breast, even when i am feeling full. he also has been suffering through a gnarly chest cold, and has been feeling pretty miserable. i went to get a weight check for him today, and in the last 2 weeks he's lost 2 oz. ??? i am pretty concerned. how normal is it for him to lose weight while teething? is that normal at all? he's already on a pretty slow curve (he hasn't even doubled his birth weight), so the 2 oz seems like a really big deal.
my plan of action is to go back to my pump a few times a day, up his supplement a bit, and throw in some avocado/other foods here and there, not to replace any nursings but in addition, when he wouldn't be convinced to nurse anyway (such a busy guy right now! who can stop to eat?). would love some feedback on how normal losing weight while sick and teething is.......anyone btdt?
