He really is adorable! reminds me of my favorite little guy at the daycare i used to work for! such a happy bright face. I agree with hilary. The LC might be a lot more helpful for his weight than a ped who i feel might be inclined to push the supplementation with formula. If you have a pump perhaps you could feed from one side and pump the other and then switch with each feeding. and you could offer him the expressed milk after he has completely drained the first breast. i'm not sure if that would make a difference since i don't BF but maybe a BF mama could be more informative.
Either way, only 2lbs in about 4 months seems a little low. See what your ped says and then go from there. You don't have to do anything you don't want to after all and if anything you might get a diagnosis and be able to research an eastern medicine type cure.
