My son is 3 months old. He was tongue-tied and was diagnosed at 2 months and had it fixed. He is sucking well but my supply is very low. I will be starting donperidone as soon as it arrives.
I work full-time and pump 4x a day only getting about 5oz. I have to supplement with formula for the rest of day while I'm gone. I had been using "Baby's Own" but it caused terrible constipation (very hard followed by dark green sludge). I just switched to Nestle Good Start because it said easy to digest but this seems to be giving him terrible stomach aches. My mom has had to help him poop the last 2 days and after he does so he feels better. The stool is runny, yellow and seedy (which is what bf'ing baby stool is suppose to look like right?). I hate my pediatrician so I really don't want to consult with her. She didn't believe me about tongue-tie and doesn't listen to me.
I'm hoping to only have to supplement for another few weeks til the donperidone kicks in. Any suggestions on formulas?
That or maybe I should pump like a crazy woman... thanks.

They also have a lactose-free formula and a soy formula if that ends up being needed.
