Re: Suddenly not gaining weight
There's a reason why doctors don't weigh/measure babies every day: they know that growth doesn't always proceed in a smooth, constant fashion. There are times when a baby will allocate his calories equally to growing in weight and height, and also times when he will pause in one dimension while spurting up in another. There are also times when weight gain will pause due to illness- that sounds like a possibility with your LO. And another really common circumstance is mismeasurement. Unless you bought a professional quality baby scale, your data could be off. And even with a professional scale, your data can be off if the scale isn't properly calibrated or the baby has been weighed variably in the nude and clothed.
One thing I want to reassure you about is that 10% weight loss in the first 24 hours. That's really unusual- when a baby loses that much weight in such a short time period, it's generally due fan the loss of fluid weight, not actual body weight. Did you by chance have IV fluids during your birth, and if so, how long did you have them?
