Our baby is 3 1/2 weeks old. He lost about 10% of his weight in the first 5 days or so and we have been fighting uphill since. He is now only 3 oz over birth weight. My wife has had trouble latching which lead to a frenulum (sp) clip yesterday. He still cries a lot while getting on and seems to have problems getting on but seems conent once there. We were very optimistic this would help, however we got the scale from lactation today and he has taken less than an ounce each of the two times we checked it today.
We have been pumping and supplementing him some all along based on lactation recommendations to get his weight up. Supply seems fine, there is almost always 1.5-2.5 oz left when he's done eating.
Now it just feels like we're out of options. He just doesn't take the milk and needs to get his weight up. Any thoughts would be appreciated at this point.
