    Baby only gained 50g at 10 day appointment which isn't good and have to go again in 4 days to see if she's put weight on :(
    Anyway... she's feeing like every 1 to 2 hours and is on breast for 1 to 2 hours! My boobs are sore... they do leak alot though, but I gave her a formula bottle after a 2 hour feed and ahead drank 70ml which is alot apparently :/
    Should I start topping her up with formula after a feed? X

    I would say top up if she is having less than 6 wet nappies a day. That's what the HV told me x

    I think you need to speak to hv and breast feeding support. I had to give top ups but i weaned her of which was bloody difficult. She is now almost 15month and im still feeding her!x
