Re: 2 month old nurse frequent but slow weight gain
So your baby took 3 oz over the course of a 40 minute feeding- that's a totally normal, totally adequate feeding for a breastfed baby. Most breastfed babies take 2-4 oz at a time, and feed around 8-12 times a day. (8 is usually the bare minimum.). That means that most breastfed babies take in 20-30 oz of milk per day. As long as you're feeding at least 8 times a day and the baby's intake is around 2-4 oz each time, she should have no trouble getting her needs met.
Stomach sleeping can be a problem for some moms, but if your baby can extract 3 oz at a time it's unlikely that you have a supply problem.
Can you posts a complete weight hisotry for your baby? That could really help us figure out if the pediatrician and LC are on track about the baby's weight, or if this is all a lot of worry over nothing.
