I've kinda asked about this b/f but I'm getting concerned. I know many of you said not to listen to my ped getting on my case about my ds gaining so much weight. But I am reading that average weight gain is 6-8 ounces per week? My ds is gaining 1 lb a week since 2 weeks. He's only 2 1/2 months and already 17 lbs!! My ds1 weight 16 1/2 lbs at 4 months! His brother has passed him in weight 2 months early. Is it possible for a BF to be gaining TOO much weight?
Should I spread out his feedings more to drop a feeding? I've been feeding on more of a schedule since I didn't want my milk supply to drop. Basically he eats 8x's a day for about 7 min each feed. At night he goes 5-6 hour stretch otherwise I feed every 2.5 to 3 hours. I think I could drop a feed by stretching it to 3 to 4 hours but I don't know what's normal for a 2 1/2 month baby. I didn't stretch it out earlier b/c I wanted to make sure I had a good supply. Any thoughts??
