So we went for the weight in at the drs office and Baby has only gained 10 oz in 26 days. Dr says that that is room for concern, hes in less than the 5th percentile..
But that he has grown a whole inch and his head is growing. and that he is on par with all of his motor skills for his age and that he looked reall
He wants me to try and give baby a bottle of formula after each nursing session. "i have heard that even a baby that is growing with no concerns will still accept a bottle"
I asked the Dr if he was using a chart for breastfed babies and he said that there wasnt such a thing. That all babies formula and breastfed should be growing the same. He also said that him and the other drs on the s(((( dont agree with the aap about the new guidelines about feeding babies.
So I did let him have 2 oz but you know, He took a nap, he was tired in the first place and fussy "he has started to fight sleep" and he still woke up two hours later. then he just nursed to sleep.
He said that maybe baby was waking up every 2-3 hours is because he needs the calorie intake and that most babies are sleeping through the night, that Samuel should be to. But I told him he sleeps quite a bit 3-4 hours in the moring when I am gone to work.
Also at night he doesnt fully wake up, I should have told doc that he more does it for comfort I think because I checked last night and he would wiggle and then not really fuss but i would pick him up and nurse him and he fall back asleep with in 10 mins.
I pumped like the dickens last night. like every hour from 10-3 almost then I knew I had to work so I didnt do it after three. But Then I did do it at 5 somthing and got an ounce. This is with him nursing inbetween these pumpings.
What can I do. I am on reglan just because at his well baby the dr said he was on the small side and went off his curve and to add more to his bottles. WHich he is now taking 15 oz divided into 3 bottles. He goes every 3 hours when I am away and generall every 2 hours when hes with me. I started fenugreek before for the pump out put but now and using it religiously with half the amount of blessed thistle because I am afraid
HE is 5 months old this week, he seems to be having the normal amount of diapers. A few super soaked so bad they come out of his clothes generally this is when he first wakes up. then moderalty after that. about 8 a day at least for the most part that I can tell. and his poops are always weird they are a few burst here and there and then he has one or two major ones in 7 days.
What can I do. I am goind to be checked when ever I ahve a chance to talk with a dr about thyroid, though we dont have a family history, about ppd and what ever else. "i had a csection birth so I dont think that there is any placenta left. PLEASE HELP ME THANKS IN ADVANCE Also how would I go about having a session watched or to see if this is the reason.....I dont want my nursing relationship with son to end. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH.
