    Default weight issues update and questions:(

    My Lo has been dealing with issues gaining since she was born.
    She went to wic yesterday for weight check and she went from 11.1 to 11.8 in one month THe nutritionist said not to stop bfing because she has been so consistent in her slow weight she is following her own pattern of weight gain and it hasnt changed. Started to take reglan last week, am pumping like crazy and still get an extra eight oz a day. So starting now to believe its not my supply, BUT when i pump for 15 to20 min i notice there is a very little bit of fat in milk! Does this happen for a reason. Is it possible to have little or no fat in bm?

    I'm not sure. IF that were the case I'd probably suggest eating more healthy fats yourself Are you dieting right now? It sounds like the nutritionist was encouraging though, so don't worry too much about it. Do you exclusively pump?

    Thats great you have the support of your nutritionist! I am sure this is hard news to absorb though after all the hard work you have gone through. I am sure that you probably just want a worry-free bf relationship.

    She is just now growing out of three months clothing because of her length. she has also got chunky thighs but thats the only part she is gaining
    I wish i was dieting i am overwieght and was disapointed i havent lost any while bfing.
    I am eating healthy and do splurge sometimes cause I find myself craving like during pregnancy

    In all of the studies I have read, breast milk is identical in nutrients except in cases of extreme malnutrition or starving of the mother. I am sure your milk is loaded with yummy stuff!

    Hey, you are dieting to feed your baby. Just think of it that way.
