Re: Preemie baby, am I freaking for nothing?
You need a new Ped! Honestly a supportive Dr. makes all the difference. If you have to stay with her, do your best to stand your ground. You know you're right and you need to stand your ground!
It sounds like she's having a lot of poopy diapers and a good amount of wet, so you should keep doing what you're doing!! My LO was very sleepy at first, its normal! Just offer the breast any time your baby even looks at you funny....and you'll get there. I see NO reason to supplement.
I have a SGA slow gainer...but she's getting bigger and bigger faster and faster. She just took her time in the beginning, plus with her NICU stay it took longer for my milk supply to be established.
