Question about weight gain
Am I overfeeding my one month old? here is some background info on us.
I have a 4 week old son who is a nursing champ. He eats every 1 1/2 to 3 hours around the clock. I nurse on demand and we haven't really had an issues. Our only problem is he won't take a pacifier and uses me to pacify himself. During our last visit to nursing support group we did a pre and post feed weigh. He transferred 4 oz's during his feed. About 15 minutes later he was fussy and used me to pacify himself. I did another weigh and realized he transferred another ounce. The lactation consultant discussed his weight gain with me and told me I might be over feeding him. He was born 7lbs 15 oz and weighed 11 lbs at 4 weeks.
Fwiw he never spits up and seems content after feeding.
