My son was born on 4/7/14 weighing 9 lb, 4 oz. He dropped to 8-4 before we left the hospital 4 days later, but was back to 9-5 at his 2 week appointment. At his 2 month appointment this past Tuesday, he was 11-12, but had a touch of a stomach bug (as noted by diarrhea - not seedy, watery stools). His vaccinations were pushed out a few days. We went back Friday for shots and a weight check, and he was down to 11-6 (same scale as previous visit).
In the days between visits, I met with our LC twice and did a before/after weight feeding. At that feeding, Jake didn't eat as good as he usually does but managed to gain 3.4 ounces. LC suggested fish oil 3x/day and a couple of diet changes. She also suggested compression feeding in an attempt to shorten Jake's usual 45-55 minute feeding sessions. Now the ped wants me to supplement with BM, does this mean adding a feeding or 2 or replacing a current session at the breast with an expressed feeding? Any other suggestions??? I see the LC again Monday for a weight check.
