Thank goodness for these forums is all I can say!!!
My son is 3 weeks old and is exclusively breastfed. His birth weight was 9lbs 12oz and he is now back to 9lbs 9oz from 9lbs 3oz, however, his weight has stayed the same for a week and I am concerned for a few reasons.
Certain feeds, at random times of day, he really fusses with the nipple. He drinks the foremilk no problem then starts to mess around with the nipple as the feed goes on and I really struggle to get him to drink properly. We have to latch on time and time again. The other problem is that he falls asleep really easily and will not stir sufficiently to feed well and fill himself up which makes him grouchy when he's not feeding and he tends to cry a lot.
Obviously this means frequent feeds which I am not concerned about plus he has severe reflux for which he's on medication, domperidone and ranitidine, so am wondering whether this is affecting his stomach and feeding pattern.
I feel so sorry for the little guy and feel like I am failing him which just makes me want to go out and get him some formula to give him a satisfying feed.
I also put a link in to show him off.
