Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern, but it is actually normal for a newborn baby to lose a few percent of his weight when he is born. Although it should be close to two weeks, your weight has begun to rise again, but you should not rush to give it formula milk, especially if the one who says your milk is not good is not a pediatrician.
Because once you give other nutrients to children besides breast milk, then he can not be said to consume exclusive breast milk again. Whereas exclusive breastfeeding in the first 6 months of life is the recommendation of all doctors throughout the world. This is because breast milk contains what no formula milk has, and the benefits are emotional closeness that cannot be replaced by formula milk.
So if you face a problem with your baby's case, the best step is to consult a pediatrician, which if difficult, can go to the nearest general practitioner, such as in a clinic or health center. Listening to advice from fellow mothers, parents or people around is good, but still be aware of information that can not be justified science.
Now with your child's condition, chances are he or she is sleeping more because formula milk makes him full longer. This is natural for formula feeding, but it is not a solution for parents who want their children to be calmer and not cry often, for reasons of the benefits of breastfeeding that we mentioned earlier. With breast milk, although he flies more often, the child's immune system and brain development can be better, and he can get sick less often.
The next suggestion, you should still take your child to the pediatrician, to be sure about the cause of weight loss, whether it is part of the normal process, or there is a certain abnormality. The treatment that your child will receive later depends on the results of this examination. Meanwhile, multiply the consumption of food that can increase breast milk, and keep trying to continue to give ASI to your child, unless it is prohibited by a pediatrician. So, hopefully answering your question.
