My first child is 17 days old, she was 8 lb at birth, and now is still at her lowest weight of 7lb 5.8 oz. I am BF exclusively and compressing the breast with feeding. We are working on improving the latch.
The first week she was put on antibiotics, had 2 X-rays and a upper GI. It turned out there was nothing wrong with her, however the antibiotics and barium hurt her tummy for a week.
She eats every 2-3 hours in the day, 3-4 at night, wet diaper every feeding, 1-2 dirty a day.
All her vitals are perfect, pink skin, bright, wet looking eyes, she is VERY active. The nurse wants me to add formula to her diet, but I think she might just have gotten a slow start, and have a high metabolism.
We do see a doc in a couple days.
