Katie Bates Clark opens up about Hailey’s health concerns.

As TV Shows Ace reported this week, Katie revealed to fans that her daughter Hailey is dealing with some challenges. Sadly, the little one is not back up to her birth weight. Because of this, she will have to supplement her feedings if she doesn’t gain more weight by this Friday.

While Katie chatted about this on her Instagram Stories, she got pretty emotional. She obviously wants to do what’s best for her little girl, but she would prefer to breastfeed her and not have to supplement.
