LO hasn't gained much weight since his last checkup. Today at 6.5 mths he weighs 15lbs 10oz. The dr. said this is on the lower side of average, but he wasn't worried about it "yet". But I am!
I am really struggling to keep up with milk to send to daycare, and I normally only send 9 oz (and that is with 4-5 pumping times)!!! He takes a 5 oz bottle around 9:45, and a 4 oz bottle with a jar of babyfood at 1:45. I nurse at night and around 5 am, then again at 4:00 and through the evening when he wants to.
Tonight after his appt I tried to nurse but he only would do it for a few minutes. So I gave him another jar of baby food, which he ate right up. I don't want him to lose or not gain weight!
What do I do? He doesn't seem hungry,but is 9 oz while at daycare enough? Do I need to start using formula too?
Thanks for thoughts, I am at a loss on what I need to do.
