I never supplemented.

This was in fierce opposition to the opinion of the local public health nurse and the lactation consultant I saw. They were freaking out and throwing around comments about "brain damage" because my boys had not returned to birth weight quickly enough for their standards. My boys actually didn't re-gain to birth weight until around 7 weeks, I think it was (you can look for my old posts if you need more detail).

Our newborns were bright, alert, healthy, peeing, pooping, etc, etc - just not gaining quickly.

The family doctor we finally we able to see at apx 9-10 weeks supported our decision.

Supplementing can so easily become a self-defeating measure. I am SO GLAD we stayed the course! Now thinking about weaning soon; boys are not very often interested anymore. /

Six kids, sixth sense, six degrees of separation. . . from sanity!
Not sure that I'm crunchy, but definitely a "tough chew".
