Marina I think you are going good with breast feed session, make sure you feed from one breast entirely so that he gets both fore milk and hind milk, did your doctor suggest for top feed? Usually if the weight gain is less then they suggest top feeding with formula milk. What is his suggestion?

Understanding Baby Weight Gain

Hey marina.. I agree wid Rebecca Prakash.. Bf timing is good.. How long is he feeding??

Marina,do you mean to say every 2 hours in day and 3 in night? See, its okay to top up if required. I ebfed my kid and her weight is in the least percentile. So,just talk to your doc,if he recommends topping up once or twice a day. There's no harm in it!

Thanks rebecca.. yup his doc suggested nan pro but i have not yet started

Thanks priti... he s feeding for 45 mins max
