My 7.5 week old son had been gaining weight at about 2 ozs per day since close to birth. Then yesterday I weiged him and in 15 days he had only gained 14 ozs. I know that 1 oz per day is the norm, but since he decreased so much I wonder if that is something to worry about. Each time he was measured on the same scale and was naked.
BTW... he weighed 8 lbs 5 ozs at birth, was 7 lbs 11 ozs when he left the hospital and weighed 12 lbs 12 ozs yesterday.
Also, I was told by a few LC's that I should feed him 20 mins on each side. He is a very demanding feeder and never seems satiated even after 40 mins total. Perhaps I should increase the amount of time I feed him for a little while. He still feed every 2.5 to 3 hours day or night. Any advice?
