All day Kayleigh only had 2 wet diapers and her 2nd diaper had just a tiny bit of pee in it. When I changed her this morning, it felt like she had hardly pee'd during the night at all. I don't think this bf is doing much for her. Is it time to just throw in the towel and say "I tried."? She's 9 months old now and she's still a petite little girl and her 9 month appt. has me worried. Last time she was checked she barely gained any weight in 8 weeks and her Dr. said she'd see where she is at at her 9 month appt, I can tell she's gained maybe 1lb or so since then. I have even gone as far supplemented, just so she's getting some extra calories I am obviously not supplying. The solids never fill her up or help with her weight. The Fenugreek seems not to be helping me this time around. I am almost convinced I have dried up. No more letdowns or anything, it is depressing me. I have been under stress, Mara isn't doing well in school, struggling and her teachers say Mara just doesn't care about anything at school and doesn't try and will be held back in the 1st grade unless she starts doing better than what she is. Nick, I am under stress about his speech delay and getting nowhere with a speech therepist. Here at 9 months, Kayleigh isn't even trying to crawl, she won't even get on her knee's. I am seriously getting worried here. If I went through everything I had to go through with Nick about his same weight issues he had, this would be one very long post. At 3/12 he's 26lbs and not gaining. His weight slacked off when he was 6 months and he was 16lbs and stayed at 16lbs until he was like 18 months or 2 years, I can't think straight right now. Parent teacher conference has me a mess right now. I am just frustrated with everything and becomming depressed, I even cried talking to my mom today b/c of everything going on, I can't catch a break.
Please no one suggest pumping, it does me no good, oatmeal isn't doing much either. I really, really, really want to bf until she is 18 months but at this rate I don't know if we will make it to 10 months. If her next weight check isn't good, then I don't know what I am going to do. Everyone is like "You have tried for 9 months and she's just not thriving off of it. You tried and thats all that counts." I don't want to throw in the towel so easily but my babies health and weight is #1 priority.
