    So 14 ounces in 3 weeks is about 4 and a half ounces per week. This is on the low side of normal, the loose average is about 6 ounces. Still ok, but with a low amount of wets I think I would consult a real live LC or local La Leche Leader(<free) to see if there is something we might be missing online. Could you ask your Dr for a referral or call your WIC office?

    Take a bottle and measure out 4 ounces, put it in a diaper, give it heft. Does it feel about right? Your aim is at least 4-5 of those a day according to LLL's Breast Feeding Answer Book. Page 39. At three per day you are close if the weight is similar.

    So I had kept her diapers from yesterday, just in case she had no wets today (things are looking better so far) Her diaper today that she just had was bout 4 oz in weight but the ones from yesterday were closer to 3... I just hope whatever it was is past us now...
