I just got back from taking my son to his 2 week checkup and was disappointed that he had only gained one ounce I have been feeding him every 2 hrs waking him during the day and at night he'll go as long as 3 hrs and will want to feed again. His diaper output has always been good so I wasn't concerned until now that he isn't getting enough. I'm afraid I'm losing the support of my dh with the whole BF. I'm a FTM and our son was born 1/21 8 lbs 2 oz with his weight today at 7 lbs 6 oz (up 1 oz from last appt 1/24).
The dr has me coming in on Monday to recheck his weight. At this time, he said to just keep doing what I'm doing and we'll go from there. He mentioned that possibly my milk came in later than I thought?? Other than the lack of weight gain, my lo is doing well. I really would like to keep exclusively BF and hearing the dr. mention that I might need to supplement really hit me hard.
I would love to hear from you ladies for some advice and support. I'm trying not to let this get to me.
Thanks in advance.
