Hello! This is my first time posting on these boards! I would like an opinion in my daughter's weight as I am very worried and maybe for no reason?
My daughter was induced at 38 weeks due to IUGR. She was born 5 lbs 1 oz and was 17.5 inches long. Her weight before we left the hospital was 4 lbs 12 oz. she has been exclusively breastfed until recently when I started solids at the suggestion of her pediatrician. Her weights are as follows:
2 Months: 9lbs
3 Months: 9 lbs 14 oz
4 Months: 10 lbs 12 oz
5.5 Months: 12 lbs 1 oz
6 Months: 12 lbs 9 oz and 24 inches long
Around three months I started the Mirena IUD. That is when the doctor said her weight gain was not good.
I saw a second pediatrician around 5.5 months and she suggested I fortify and start solids 3 times a day! I have also noticed that my daughter has not gained weight at all in a week and I'm concerned. Should I be worried about her weight? She seems so small to all my friends babies and everyone looks at her as though she is 3 months rather than 6. What can I do to help her gain more weight?
Oh and she had about 6-8 pee diapers a day as well as poop 2-3 times a day!
