My DD is 4 wks 3 days. She was 8lbs 2oz at birth. We have been EBF since day 1. She got down to 7lbs 8oz at her lowest point. She was 7 13 2 weeks ago, and then this past Friday I took her and she was STILL 7lbs 13oz. So at 4 weeks,. shes still not to her birth weight!
We nurse ATLEAST every 2-3 hours, a little longer at night. She has plenty of wet diapers a day and probably about 10 dirty ones a day!
When we nurse, I hear her swallowing for the first few minutes, and then she slows down, and sometimes falls asleep.
She crys alot when Im not holding her or nursing her. But she sleeps great at night.
I started taking fenugreek last night to see if it will help (2capsules) and Ill take it 3x a day.
I tried pumping after a feeding on friday to see if I got anything, and it was only a few drops, so Im pretty sure she's emptying the breast when she's eating.
I feel like I might be starving her or something - I really just want her to grow!
