My 4 month old is not gaing weight well...she only gained 10 oz in the past two months...we had some weight gain issues right after birth, but they were resolved within a month. I do not like the "charts" at the Dr.'s office, but according to them she is now in the 5-10 % where before she was in the 50%. She is a petite baby but I am concerned that there was a big drop in her weight gain. She seems to be eating fine...she emptys one breast and then eats some on the other side. She has anywhere from 5-8 wet dapers a day. Her poops are not daily but she has one every three days at least.
My doctor wants me to supplement with formula but I do not want to do that...as of now, I am pumping after each feeding and supplementing with that.
Does anyone know what might be causing this or what I can do to help my LO gain weight? Do I need to be eating differently?
