I gave birth via c-section (my first) to baby #9 on 11/10/05. She weighed 8lbs 11oz. She was at the breast within the hour after delivery. We stayed in hospital for 3 days, and nursing seemed to be going well. Less problems this time than ever before. No sore nipples, no engorgement, etc. She was however somewhat of a "lazy" nurser, falling asleep at the breast. A lactation consultant visited with me a couple of times and said latch looked good, etc.
So here's my concern...
dd weighed 7'15" at release from hospital on 11/13.
At two week check (really 18 days), she weighed 8'4". Ped said to keep eye on her output, which was good. Lots of poops.
I have taken her in weekly for weight checks since then. While she has never lost weight, her gain has been slow. At her two month check she was 9'13". I took her in 6 days later and she was diagnosed with an ear infection, she weighed 10'2" then.
Does this seem okay? Ped does not seem too concerned, as she is steadily gaining and she looks good. Dh and I are not small people. All of my other children were much bigger by two months, even the girls.
Should I be worried?
