Low milk supply ?
Hi Dr. I am worried about my little one he is 7 weeks old now. His weighs 4.1 Kg as on 6 weeks. I feed him frequently every 2 to 2.5 hrs. Sometimes my breasts are full, which I can feel and I am sure then that I have fed enough to my baby, however sometimes, I feel the breasts are loose and do not have enough milk. I feel I have low milk supply and not sure if my baby's milk demand is more than I can produce. I am eating every 4 hrs to ensure I have more and more of milk supply, but does not seem to help much. I am worried if this low milk supply will cause him loose weight, should I provide Cow milk alongside mine to ensure he gets enough for his growth.
