My baby is 3 weeks old. He was full term, 8 lb 10 oz at birth and did a great job nursing as soon as he was born. He lost a normal amount of weight, then had started to regain at our first newborn checkup. We went back for his 2 week checkup and he had gained 3 oz in 10 days, so my pedi recommended feeding him more often. Went back today and he had lost an ounce (so he hasn't gained any weight in 2 weeks). Of course she recommended supplementing with formula. She said to try to give him 1 oz every other feed after he nurses. I really would rather not use formula.
Does anyone have recommendations of what I could do? He seems to have a correct latch. He feeds every 2-3 hours and then is satisfied afterwards. However, he is only having 1-2 BMs a day (lots of wet diapers) and that makes me think he isn't getting enough or is not getting enough hind milk. I would appreciate any advice! I have to go back on Monday to check his weight.
