Re: Can't feed baby awake! Low weight g
Bed on the weights you've posted (thank you!) I don't see a big problem. Your baby is wigggling around on the charts, but she seems to be doing it in a way that is pretty normal. She was born on the smaller side of average, jumped up a few percentiles in the early weeks, and then jumped down a few percentiles around 8 weeks. My kids followed a similar growth trajectory, albeit at the very top end of the chart. At around 4-6 months they both dropped from around the 100th percentile for weight to around the 70-80th. Percent-wise, that's a much bigger drop than your LO experienced.
Think you are definitely right to drop the schedule, and to try to encourage your LO to nurse every 2-3 hours during the day. It may be that the schedule has caused her to lose touch with her own hunger signs, so that you must be much more proactive in attempting to get her to nurse. Cramming in as many daytime feedings as possible may help with the nights: babies who get lots of calories during the day may be a bit more likely to give you a nice 5 hour stretch at night (and with an infant, 5 hours counts as "sleeping through the night").
Keep trying different positions and different light regimes. If you nurse side-lying at night, going into a dark quiet room and using that position during the day may help. You'll get your little lady straightened out!
