I have asked questions before about my son who is gaining weight really slow. He was three months old ( on the 6th) and is just 10lbs 11oz. He gained only five ounces in 16 days. He weighed 8lbs 8oz. at birth.
He does not sleep well at all...only 20 min. here and there until the evening when he is exhausted and has a three hour sretch every know and then. He sleeps in the sling during the day,..and the carseat when we are out, cosleeps at night time. I worry that he isn't sleeping well because he is not begin fed enough. He latches on well, sucks fine, but never falls off the breast asleep or full. I don't know what to do anymore. At the bf support group I attend all the babies his age are 15-16 lbs. I am almost embarrased to go and have him weighed. What would you do? I am worried he is just getting enough to stay hydrated but not enough to grow...what about brain development?
*sigh* bf is hard work...emotionally.
