1. You want to know the position of your doctors regarding exclusive breastfeeding. Doctors often say they are supportive, but when your baby comes home from the hospital and is underweight for the first week, they may recommend supplements. If you believe in exclusive breastfeeding, you need to find a doctor who will allow your baby to regain her birth weight in 2-3 weeks, not the first. You can find the best Duluth clinic pediatrics through https://omegapediatrics.com/cities/duluth-georgia/.
You also need a pediatrician for alternative suggestions in addition to traditional formula supplementation. For example, having her express milk after breastfeeding to help increase the supply, so that you take supplements to increase the supply yourself (for example, fenugreek or breast milk tea)
Please note that if you must have difficulty breastfeeding, I recommend that you schedule a meeting with a lactation consultant or counselor for more information, have your baby checked for a tongue-tied (this does not allow him to latch on properly, which means they get less milk and mealtime is difficult for you and makes your nipples and breasts more sensitive).
2. Find out where you stand on antibiotic use. Some pediatricians like to use antibiotics for many ailments. This ruins the flora of her son (and hers when he decides to take them) in her stomach.
If your doctor insists that an antibiotic be taken, ask what the suggested drug concentration is and what preventive measures can be taken to avoid destroying the flora in your child's stomach. Insist that your doctor suggest a probiotic while your child is taking the medication and for several weeks afterward to restore the flora.
