Good for you mama!! All the doctors here seem to push formula at first hint of slow weight gain. It is so frustrating. I like to try to get my girls to pump and supplement with that instead of formula. Keep up the good work mama!! I really hope this doctor works out for you.

Another thing that drives me nuts is that the doctors use the formula feeding charts. Ask for your child to be charted on the WHO chart which is based on breastfeeding infants not formula fed.
