I posted about 2 weeks ago that my LO was nursing nursing all day long then gulping down a pumped supplement (which we had started because of poor weight regain)
Here I am 10 days or so later. Saw a lactation consultant on Monday. His weight gain in a week was only 60 grams (they want to see 130 minimum). This was after we started to cut the supplemented feedings.
Well, this week. He seems to be losing interest in nursing. I get him to latch on and he nurses for maybe 5 min. per side. I can't get him to relatch and suck!! At times I can get him latched back on and he doesn't suck... Middle of the night is worse. He was latching on beautifully in a side lying position and nursing about 15 min. on each side. Last 2 nights... I can barely get 3 sucks. He's taking the bottle with gusto and finishing it off in the blink of an eye.
I seriously don't know what to do. I'm in tears at least 2 times a day. And, to make matters worse. I was getting a minimum of 70 ml each time I pumped now am getting 30.
ANY help would be appreciated. I'm failing. I've successfully fed my other 2 kids and now with my last angel Im failing him.
