Re: Baby not gaining weight
I disagree with your doctor that you should be getting 2 to 3 ounces out by pumping. First of all, what kind of pump were you using? Your baby removes milk more efficiently than any pump, even the best hospital grade pumps.
How many wet/dirty diapers is your baby having? To me it sounds like you're producing enough, given how you are nursing. Does she seem fussy after she eats?
Have you talked to a lactation consultant? And did you get a lot of IV fluids during the birth?
You're only 3 ounces shy of birth weight. That's not bad at all.
