My 2 week old daughter has had issues with spitting up and not gaining weight faster enough. At 2 weeks she was 4 oz shy of birth weight. My pediatrician prescribed her medication for reflux with the hope that maybe she isn't eating as much because of all the spit up, but it's hard to tell if it's working. She sleeps well during the day and pretty well during the night, so I am constantly needing to wake her up for feelings. Originally, it was my understanding that timing between feelings should be counted from the beginning of one feeding to the beginning of the next. It is also my understanding that it's best to space daytime feelings no more than 3 hrs and night time feelings no more than 4 hrs. So given that my daughter tends to nurse, spit up nurse again (and so on and so on and so on), three hours can pass pretty quickly. Should I be counting differently? Also, I do burp her after feedings and hold her upright for at least 15 minutes and then place her at an incline for a little bit longer.
I really just want my girl to gain weight, so if I need to give up sleep to do this, so be it. Thanks in advance!
