My daughter weighed 14.6 at her 4 mos appt and now at 7 mos is only 15.2. she is gaining very very slowly and has dropped from the 50 or 75 % down to the 25% (95% -100% in height so long and skinny). It just keeps dropping. She's happy and meeting milestones fine.
I'm mostly a stay at home mom so she has only gotten a bottle occasionally. I work 1 day a week generally so she'll get bottles that day.
I started solids a few weeks ago and in the last few days I have been feeding her more and more (3 times today) plus I have been adding in an expressed bottle once a day just to increase weight gain (and we have had thrush so anything I pumped I wanted to give to her sooner rather than later to avoid re-infection later). None of this has helped.
On top of all the stress of her not gaining I started my period this week for the first time and I feel like my supply has dropped. I'm drinking a ton of water, started fenugreek 2 days ago, and tried pumping throughout the day today when possible.
I'm feeling very defeated. My older daughter started loosing weight at 4 mos and I had to supplement with formula. by 6-9 mos my milk had dried up.This time around things were going so much better but now I feel like things are back on the downward slide.
