Re: Slowed weight gain
Don't panic! It's normal for weight gain to fluctuate from day to day, week to week, and month to month. That's why pediatricians typically don't want to weigh happy, healthy babies every week: zoom in too close on the data and you can freak out over normal variations.
One thing that often happens is that baby's weight gain will pause while he grows significantly in height (or vice versa). Kids don't allocate their calories equally at all times. And as babies become more mobile, they devote increasing amounts of calories to action (reaching, rolling, kicking, crawling, etc.) and less get packed on as fat. As babies get more active, weight gain slows down a lot, and many babies drop percentiles as they get towards the middle of the first year.
It's also totally normal for a baby to take in about 2 oz at a feeding throughout the first year. Breastfed babies typically do not increase their volume needs much- which is in contrast to formula-fed babies, who eat increasing amounts as the year progresses.
Basically, with a happy, healthy, developing, normal baby who is producing lots of wet and poopy diapers, a slowdown in weight gain is nothing to worry about. However, if you're at all concerned, offer the breast more often! It does not sound like you need to pump or take fenugreek, and if you want to keep breastfeeding don't supplement with formula. Formula supplements will trash your supply- every time you supplement with formula, your baby will decrease his demand for breastmilk and your supply will decrease, as well.
