My LO is four months old now, but we've been struggling with his weight since he was born. I got to breastfeed immediately after birth, but the hospital encouraged us to supplement right off the bat. So we continued doing little amounts of supplementing via syringe when we went home. At one point the doctor was happy with his weight gain and said we could stop, and then soon after got very concerned and sent us to a pediatrician -- this brings us to where we are today, supplementing with two 3 oz bottles a day. This brought his weight up from 15th percentile to 25th percentile over a few weeks. And yes, they're using the new WHO charts. He was born 9 lbs 4 oz and is now about 14.5 lbs. Thing is, he's over 99th percentile for length, so I do worry constantly that he should be heavier. The docs are fine with him being at 25th percentile though.
In terms of other history, I think he's producing enough wet diapers, although each wet isn't very much. I can get away with changing him about 4-5 times over 24 hours, although this includes using a 12-hour diaper overnight. When he was strictly breastfed, he would go over two weeks without a bowel movement. It increased a lot when we started supplements but now it's back to a week and a half between them.
I feed him at least every couple hours, including through the night, although I only offer one side at a time at night because I do side-lying position while cosleeping. Plus he falls back to sleep quickly most of the time.
