I am new here and need som advice...
My ds is 11 weeks old and has been gaining weight very slowly. He was 8.8 at birth and got down to 8.4 a week after birth. Since then he has been gaining two and a half ounces a week typically. I went on Domperidone for possible supply issues a month ago and he began to gain a bit more.At 8 weeks he was 9.13, nine weeks 10.2. He was 10.6 at 10 weeks and 10.6 agian this week.
He is a bit stuffed up and has not been sleeping as well as he had been. By well I mean more than 20 minutes. Lately he has been eating every 1-1.5 hours and at times comes off the breast crying and upset. He scratches his face and head like he is in pain. I know the domperidone has increased the speed of my let downs which has been giving him gas so I have been using ovol to help him in that area. He also chews on his hand like crazy or on my finger knuckles...could he be teething? My dd did not get one tooth until 11 months.
My dd (2 and a half years old) had a stomache bug that I think ds may have a bit of since his poops have changed from yellow and mild smelling to brown, watery, and stinky. He is still having plenty of wet dipes but all his poops are this yucky brown stuff.
So...any ideas? I hate going in to the breastfeeding group to weigh him when all these chubby babies his age are there. The other mom's always look at me pitifully and say, "So, is he gaining? He is so tiny." I also dread his three month appt.
Is there a bf baby weight chart out there?
