Hi, all. I've received so much help here that even though I will be taking my 6 month old to see the doctor, I wanted to know what you all thought as well. We just took her for her third set of vaccinations and they weighed her. She had only gained 1 pound in two months! Now she is 15lbs. 12 oz.
I'm very worried because my milk supply isn't very good. She never "finishes" a feeding, just starts popping on and off and it's painful so I sit her up. If she complains I put her back on, otherwise I assume she's done but.. I never feel a letdown or engorged or anything!
She seems to have lots of wet diapers but I am feeding her 24/7 and she never sleeps longer than a 2 hour stretch (usually only a 40 min stretch). Is she not getting enough milk? I've tried pumping but can't get out more than 2 ounces from both breasts combined.
