Feeding Your Baby When Supplementing is Needed (Fraser Health) [English] Permalink Public

Sometimes there are medical reasons for babies needing more milk than mothers can make in the first days after birth. We call it ‘medical supplementation’. This is often needed because the baby has a low sugar level in their blood (low blood sugar), they are not gaining weight as expected, or they have been born premature. Think of this added milk as ‘medicine’ for your baby. (English) Colour
