So I was feeling a bit more enthousiastic because I felt we were making progress with our latch issues. Nipples are not so sore so I was able to exclusively BF for the past week. In the previous weeks I would feed EBM 2-3 times daily with a bottle to give my nipples a break. Baby is almost 8 weeks old and has been gaining anywhere between 6-10 oz/week.
But today I weighed him (always on the same scale and with the same outfit) and he only put on like 2 oz last week!!! I am so sad and worried.
What does this mean? Could it be because I'm not giving him the bottle anymore?
He also started sleeping more at night in the previous week (6-7 hours). I pump once during this long stretch but I don't wake him up, since he was gaining well... Could STTN have made such a big difference in weight gain? He is not compensating with extra feedings during the day... I thought we were finally out of this rough patch :/ Please help!
