My baby is 19 days old and his wgt was 2.9 kg.My pediatrician told me to increase his wgt by giving your breast milk as well as formula as my milk supply is low.so I started giving him formula milk and also using breast pump so that I could check how much milk is he taking.after that; I do breastfeeding as he keeps on latching for an hour.

Exactly same situation i am facing... my boy is 10 days old and he should be gaining weight now as per dr.

Good let him latch, your milk supply will increase. Have foods like jeera, ajwain, methi, lasoon a lot. You can also buy shathavari powder mix it with a glass of milk and have twice a day.

Whs the birth weight??
