In the last three weeks he gained 120g, 200g and today 80g.
I was hoping that this last time he'd be gaining closer to 200g again in which case we'd have been given permission to wean off formula. Instead he's being weighed again in 48hrs and if his gain is still weak he will have to have more formula (currently getting about half his needs from formula). I feel like we're headed quickly toward exclusive formula feeding and I am so disappointed. I thought he was doing well.
Saturday and Sunday he had 3 poos both days (normally goes days between poos). He has also been unsettled (he was constipated before he had the poos) and not finishing feeds (maybe bloated from the constipation?) We stopped giving him infant gaviscon and his poo became soft again. I am hoping that his paltry weight gain could be related to that and he'll show a good gain these next two days, but I feel sad and pessimistic about it.
