hi everyone, i feel so lucky to have found this website.
my little guy is 8 days old. his weight bottomed out on wednesday (today is monday) and he gained about 20 grams between now and then. my doctor wasn't concerned and said that his weight should start to go up now.
he was born sunday 15th: 3820,
discharged monday 16th: 3715,
wednesday 18th:3364 and
today 23rd: 3380 (sorry for the metric system).
do you guys think this weight looks ok??
he is peeing tons, i would say that we have had 8 wets today alone, but he hasn't pooped in the last 24 hrs except for a small smear. is that ok??? before saturday he was pooping ALOT but now it's stopped. his poops are a little yellowish, but not completely (how yellow should they be?) i'm so worried that he's not getting enough or that something is wrong. my doctor also wasn't worried about the bowel movements either. of course i trust him, it's just worrisome...
this is just so hard, i want to keep nursing but don't want him to be unwell or not getting enough from me....
