Quick question my friend is here at the moment and her DD is 2 weeks older than my DD. She is a little concerned about her weight gain, she gained 3kgs at birth and now at 15 weeks is 4.7kgs. She is breastfed and feeds 5/6 times a day, she's not interested in feeding more. She's a little under the 15 percentile on the growth chart. She wasn't worried until she saw a health nurse today that said she should consider formula to help increase weight gain. Is this an overreaction? My friend wants to continue to solely BF... Should she take the nurse's advice or not?
I'm a bit worried now too as my DD is around the same with her weight gain.
I'm unsure whether the nurse meant to fully FF or supplement some feeds.
