I really just needed a place to vent so I thank you all in advance. My LO had his two month doctor's appointment yesterday. The doctor says he is not worried but he is
only in the 5th percentile for weight. I'm so worried that this is my fault--that maybe
my milk supply isn't what it should be. I never leak like a lot of moms and sometimes my nipples don't seem very wet after he is done nursing. It just breaks my heart and I've been crying thinking that maybe I'm not giving him enough to eat. He was 7.2
lbs at birth and was 6.9 lbs when we left the hospital. He was 9 lbs 11.5 ounces at
the appointment yesterday. I've been monitoring his weight closely because he had a lot of trouble latching on when he was first born (I think partly because he was born
a week early via c-section) and it seemed like he was gaining weight alright and he
always has lots of wet diapers so I thought he was alright. He has started poopingonly once every 4 days or so but I know this is normal at this age. The 5th percentile just seems so small to me though. I'm thinking I should go to the lactation
consultant again just to make sure I'm not starving him. I'm going to be devastated if I end up not being able to breastfeed him successfully. Thank you all for reading. I just need to get everything off my chest and want to help my sweet little guy.
