Re: Help! How to get underweight fussy baby to eat more?
A nursing holiday would be my first choice, too. But I'd also love for you to take him in to the pediatrician and have hem look at his ears- a stealth ear infection could explain everything- and also his gums. My guess is that some of the fussiness is related to teething.

But given your baby's extreme reluctance to nurse and the slow weight gain, I think some pumping in addition to nursing is a conservative course of action.
