Slow weight gain - should I be concerned?
My son was 7lbs 1oz (11/6/07) when when he was born. At around 3-ish months he was around 12.5. He's now a bit over five months and 13 lbs. He's outgrowing clothes, getting longer and having no problem with the milestones, but he's not gaining. He eats frequently - every 1-2 hrs usually. Should I be worried? I'm stressing about his weight gain and I'm tired of worrying. Please reassure me someone!
FWIW - We've had thrush practically since he was born. It doesn't seem to bother him at all, although he's got white spots on his tongue. I'm in pain every time I feed him, but it's pretty mild, so I've gotten used to it and don't think about it anymore. I just can't seem to get rid of this thrush.
