Re: My baby eats hourly still - please help!
Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new baby and on making it through 2 incredibly challenging months!
Can you tell us a bit more about your situation? It would help to have a complete weight history for the baby- birth weight, lowest weight, weight at each subsequent checkup. Let us know how baby has been weighed- always on the same scale and in the nude, or on different scales? Tell us how nursing feels- are you in any pain? When baby unlatches, are your nipples symmetrical or asymmetrical/wedged/creased (like new lipsticks)? What color are baby's poops don't be afraid to be graphic) and how often does she poop? Has anyone ever suggested the possibility of reflux to you?
Basically, everything you describe sounds normal, and for a baby in the 90th percentile for weight you don't need to worry much about a pause in weight gain. And the frequent feedings are normal, too. But I don't want to simply reassure you without making some effort to find out if there's anything going on that needs to be improved.
