New mom question

I had my DD 10 months ago and I am still spotting on and off, I had a c-section. For a week I will have nothing then I will have a bit of red blood then back to brown! I called my ob and I have an appt on tuesday but they were not concerned and said it could be hormonal. I don't have a fever. Anyone else experience this. My baby is great beside the fact that she is very gassy!! I am thinking of giving her a bottle and doing formula, I breastfeed now but I can't keep up with the calorie intake!!!!!!
thanks

Re: New mom question

Ok, I assume you posted this for you first. Regarding the spotting, I would say it is normal, but it is good you are seeing the doc.

YOu may want to breast feed and use formula. I had to do this for the first 12 weeks with my son b/c I never could supply enough for him to eat. You have done very well with breast feeding so switching to formula at this point is a decision only you can make. My advice would be to save the $$ and do both, breast and bottle.
