? growing?: Many confuse the willingness of a baby to feed more with their need to. A baby that is growing well, wetting diapers every 4-6 hours on breast milk alone generally does not need a supplement.The pleasure centers of the brain are stimulated by any mouthing/sucking of a baby and they will 24/7. Feeding as they wake, not when tired helps. If they are losing weight, any balanced supplement may work.
