My baby is 2 months old. The first month of nursing was really difficult and painful. But we got the hang of it and have been doing great.....so I thought. Her 2 month appointment was yesterday and has only gained 7oz. She is still only 8lbs 12oz. She was 7lbs 7oz at birth, dropped down to 6lbs 12oz. So anyways her pedi told me, for a week, give her 2-3 oz of formula after every nursing session. She wants to see that the baby can gain weight and doesn't have any other issues. Mind you she nurses every 2 hours on the dot! And she nurses for almost 45 minutes each time. So I thought this sounded a bit too much. So I went to the lactation lady I had seen a few times at the beginning. She said that's Wayyy too much. So she said just 1oz to 1 1/2 oz. so I started. An some of the feedings she doesn't even want the formula. Which is a relief. Anyways while seeing the lactation lady. She had me do a feeding to see if the latch was correct. Well, it wasn't. Which is causing such long and frequent feedings. I didnt realize it was incorrect because I haven't felt any pain or discomfort. What was wrong was her lip was turned in a bit. so she corrected it for me and also did a count on how many times she sucks before swallowing. She said 5-6. I've counted more now that I'm looking out for it. I'm confused. And I don't know how to fix it. I'm getting discourage. I was so proud of myself that I got past the struggle of the first few weeks. Thought I was doing great to do d out its been wrong and my baby has formed a habit. I feel awful that my baby has been working hard just to eat and the whole time I thought how she was eating was normal because there was no Pain at all. Anyone have any suggestions??
