I've been worried sick for the last couple of weeks as it seems DS completely stopped gaining weight.
I was so proud at the beginning as he was gaining and growing so well on my milk, but it seems like my milk is NOT working anymore.
7 lbs at birth
9.5 lbs at 1 month
14.5 lbs at 3 months
17.3 lbs at 5 months
17.5 lbs at 6 1/2 months
I nurse on demand when we are toghether. He has never had a schedule, and he likes to cluster feed. A couple of minutes of nursing every hour, or a little longer if it's been over 2 hours from his previous feeding.
When I am at work I leave 4 - 3oz bottles for him at daycare (I usually leave him for 6 -8 hrs), Sometimes he'll take 3 bottles sometimes he'll take 4 bottles. They feed him the 3oz about every 2 hours.
He has plenty of wet diapers and seems happy and satisfied. Why is he NOT gaining more weight?
What am I missing?
