Hi Tanuja, if i have understood u right your baby is in to her second month. Please dont switch on to formula if you have enough milk. As pp you can try to eat fatty and nutritious food urself to increase your supply. Give frequent breast feeds to ur baby he/ she will definitely increase weight. My doc had told me that its normal for babies to reduce weight after birth for first few months of life but sooner they will pick up with proper attention. or you can check with the same doctor what would be best for ur baby.

Hi Thanuja, whatever happens, please continue with your feed. I second Firsttimemom comment that you need to eat more calorie-rich food so that your baby gets all the calories for him to gain weight. Also, drink some water whenever you have to feed your baby and include ajwain and jeera in your diet to increase your milk supply (in case you think it is not sufficient). Last but not the least, be relaxed and calm while feeding the baby.
