I posted a few days ago about my LO spitting up and crying a lot. We went to the
pediatrician the other day and he doesn't think it's too serious. He said we could try putting him on medication but we're trying some other things first. I've been keeping him upright after feeding (holding him or putting him in a seat if I need to) and I got
some gripe water. I'm so happy that he seems to be doing a lot better. He hasn't
been spitting up nearly as much, seems happier, and has been able to sleep more.
While we were at the doctor our LO was weighed and I am kind of concerned because when I weighed him last Thursday he was 8.9 pds (he was 6 weeks old yesterday)
and at our appointment on Tuesday he was only 8.10 pds. He had recently been
gaining about an ounce a day pretty consistently so I'm concerned that maybe my
supply isn't what it should be. His diaper output is good (about 9 wets and 6 dirty
ones a day) but I don't know why he would suddenly be gaining less. The
pediatrician didn't seem to be too concerned. Do you think I should be worried?
Also, I had been waking my LO up every 3 hours at night if he didn't wake up on his own. The pediatrician said I could every 4 or 5 hours if he'll sleep that long. Does that sound right or will that make is weight gain worse?
Thanks for any advice you may have.
