First time poster here. My DD is almost 3 1/2 mo (in 2 days). We went to the dr yesterday for our monthly checkup and the doc is a bit worried that she's going down in percentiles now.
Born at 6 lb
2weeks 6.4 lb
2 1/2 mo 10.2
3 1/2 mo 11.5
Thedoc is saying she was in the 26th perc. last month (i hope i remember the weight correctly, but i'm not sure) and now she's in the 11th.
All the other measurements are ok, she has plenty wet diapers, not many poos but that has been consistent with her. She's alert, happy, sleeps well. I feed her every 1 1/2-2 hours and at night she'll only nurse twice though i offer more when she stirs. My breasts do feel a bit emptier but i still feel plenty of letdowns and she swollows well. If it weren't for this checkup i would have though she was doing great. Now of course i start questioning everything. The dr only suggested fenugreek and as much nursing as she'll take and wants too see her next month. She's pro BF and delayed solids (after 6 mo).
I have a 6 yo who was also small but as we were in Romania we didn't use any charts and i cannot remember her weights.
Please tell me i shouldn't panic just yet. I'm very commited to BF and i'm at home for a full year (Canada). I've never pumped and i only have a terrible hand pump.
I think that's all the info and i'd appreciate the help!
