I would like to start putting in more hours at work (I miss it and need it for my mental sanity!), but my pumping output SUCKS (I can pump 2 oz every 4 hours if I'm lucky). LO eats every hour or 2 (STILL) when we are together and my supply has always been pretty low. The 24/7 nursing is really wearing on my nerves. His weight gain hasn't been great, but his Dr isn't overly concerned. She has left it up to me.
In order for me to leave LO for 4-5 hours a day a couple times a week, I am considering supplementing with formula. I have huge guilt issues about this, and it's causing me a lot of stress and anxiety. Would love some input from other moms who supplement!
Why do you supplement? (ie pumping output, convenience, weight gain)
What formula do you use?
When do you do it?
Has LO had any issues switching back and forth? Any tummy issues when you started?
