We just met with our new ped this morning and Jacob weighed in at 8#12oz, He was 9#13oz at birth (every puffy/swollen if i might add) upon leaving the hospital he was 8:15 (of course they are diffrent scales)
I wanted to bf him so badly, She thinks that maybe i'm not producing enough for him - He goes thru plenty of wet diapers, we're one of those poop when we feel like it kids so every few days or so. but lots of wet ones! I feel horriable that I am not able to feed him enough, like i'm letting him down. though by looking at him you wouldn't think him to be unhappy not at all! Smiles giggles plays in bouncer or swing. She said other than the weight he looks great.
We have to go back next week for a weight check and I have to keep a diary for the next week as well as feed him 10 min on each side then offer him 2 oz of formula. ----- Yeah i did this this afernoon and he took 1.5oz then Threw it up all over himself and his swing about 15/20 minutes after eating! Then had an Explosive diaper. He likes to suck and the bottles don't seem to be a problem for us but he does know how to make mommy feel better when i offer him the bottle he pushes it away and nuzzles my arm/breast area and he's only 3 weeks old, like he knows what he likes the taste of, offer him a bottle of EBM and NO Problem. So until i can get a supple up and runinng I have to supp with formula. (ooh the awful smell and those horriable burps!
Thanks for the support i need to vent, This really saddens me but i know i must do what is best for my son.
