Did your pediatrician tell you to start supplementing because your baby isn’t gaining enough weight? Hearing those words can be frustrating, disappointing, and unhelpful! Slow weight gain may not in itself be the actual problem, but a manifestation of some other factor that should be checked first. What I mean by this is, if your baby isn’t gaining weight the solution isn’t ONLY to supplement.

Slow weight gain can be caused by a factor in the mother, infant, or both!
