My baby was born on Feb 28 2008. He was 8 lb 4 oz 21 inches long at birth. He had no interest with eating the first 3 days, however, I did nurse him 30 minutes after he was born and regularly after that but for the most part he latched on and slept. Now, he is 6 weeks and has a very good appetite, but his pediatrician has been telling me since he was 1 week old that I need to supplement (I haven't). Because of the insurance I have, I cannot seek a second opinion without her referral, so I am wondering if his weight gain is ok, or if I maybe should supplement. Here is his weight gain for the first 5 weeks...
He has 6 - 8 VERY wet diapers per day and now at 6 weeks has a bowel movement every 2 days.
