My daughter is 10 days old. We took her in yesterday for a checkup, since she was jaundiced. She weighed 7lb, 9oz at birth, was down to 6lb, 12oz when we left the hospital on day 3. Yesterday, she weighed only 6lb, 15oz. Dr. was concerned, but did not say we had to supplement yet. He wants to see her next week though for another weight check.
I saw the LC at the hospital a couple times, she and all the nurses said everything looked good--no nipple problems, good latch, good suck and swallow. She eats every 2-3 hours, occasionally a little longer at night, but never more than 3 1/2 - 4hrs. We nurse as long as she wants to, usually 10-20 min one side, I burp her, then same side another 10-20 minutes, then change diaper and switch sides for another 10-20 minutes or until she's done. She has at least 6-8 wet diapers a day, very pale urine, and poops a couple times a day, very soft, which has been brown, but is turning 'baby poop yellow' the last couple days.
So everything looks OK by the book, but she's not gaining. Any ideas? I'm scared I'll have to supplement, and that was the end of my nursing before with my son. What can I do?
