Re: Desperate! PLEASE HELP! No idea whats going on/how to he
I'm so sorry things have been so stressful, mama!
Here's what I'm thinking. Your baby is not yet 3 months old and she's already 16.6 lbs- I checked the kellymom.com chart and she's above the 95th %ile. And you say you have a great supply. So you put those two facts together and maybe what is going on is that you have so much milk that a) your baby is gaining really fast and b) is getting so much milk at once that it's making her a fussy nurser (due to fast letdowns?) and c) she actually doesn't need that many feedings per day right now. I mean, the average baby needs at least 8 feedings per day in order to get her needs met, and most babies require more, particularly during growth spurts. But there are some babies out there who seem to do quite well on fewer feedings. Maybe yours is one?
Well, what do you think of that hypothesis?
