When is it OK to say, "hey, ya know my infant isn't gaining weight and is screaming all the time, so I'm gonna feed him a bottle"?? How long should an infant lose weight, or at the very least NOT gain it?? How long should we allow an infant to act hungry yet not take the breast?? When is enough...enough?? Two weeks?? Three weeks??
Also, let's say for another debate point that a mother DID seek the advice of a lactation consultant yet STILL was having the issues. What then?? Continue on the same path?? Seek a second opinion?? Feel and maybe even hear that "you aren't doing it right"??
When is enough....enough?? Just make everyone content and stress-free....hand that baby a bottle of formula!!
