Slow Gainer or low supply or something else???
My ydd was born 8/21. She weighed 6#11oz and was 19inches at birth (rcs) and 6#1oz at discharge. At her one week checkup she weighed 6#2oz. At three weeks she was back at birth weight. Last Friday I weighed her and she was only 7#2.5oz but was 24inches long.
She has about 6-8 wet diapers a day, nurses 9-12 times a day, liquid poops, is awake & content, coos, follows sounds & people, and is trying to roll over. She only cries when she needs changing or is hungry.
When I pump AFTER she nurses I get 1oz total and if she misses a feeding i get anywhere from 2 1/2-3 oz total.
Am I making enough, have low supply or is she just a slow gainer??
I didnt bf with my older two but they only weighed 12#8 oz and 14#6oz at 12 months. Are my babies just small?? Both are healthy active kids with no disabities or illnesses
