A friend of mine recently had a baby boy. We aren't very close friends but we are friends. Anyway she posted on FB that he is still losing weight (he's been home about a week or so) and that she needs more milk to come in fast. Well, another friend of hers that I don't know replied advising her to supplement with formula. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but if she's wanting her supply to go up I don't think supplementing would help her. In my reply I encouraged her to just keep trying and maybe do a feeding marathon, but that I would hold off on supplementing just yet.
I'm not trying to start any kind of debate or irritate her in any way, but I think it's sad that so many women lack information about breastfeeding, which in my opinion leads to a lot of them doing things that are counterproductive to their breastfeeding goals. I have nothing against formula feeding (obviously since Lyla has been FF since 10.5 months), but did I overstep?
