My 2-month-old daughter was diagnosed last week (Friday) with reflux. At that appointment the doctor was also concerned about her weight, which was in the 26th percentile (she weighed 10 lbs 10 oz). She theorized the reflux might be impacting it. I'm trying some changes and we have an appointment this Friday to see how things are going and if we want to consider medicine.
Well... I went out and bought a baby scale and weighed her today. She has only gained an ounce, and I can't help but be a little scared.
My biggest fear is the doctor will suggest going to formula. I love breastfeeding, it seems to have been going pretty well for us so far... and my daughter will rarely take a bottle of pumped milk.
She hasn't seemed particularly interested in eating today or yesterday--she will eat often enough, but not for very long. She's had poopy and wet diapers and aside from her evening reflux screaming as been quite happy and pleasant.
Should I work on encouraging her to eat more?
