I am new here. I am hoping someone can help!
I have a concern about my daughter who will be 7 months old tomorrow.
She was born 7 pounds 2 ounces, she gained weight great until 5 months of age. At 5 months she was 13 pounds. I took her in for another weight check at she had only gained 4 ounces.
I am taking her in for another weight check later this week, but from our home scale she doesn't seem to have gained any more than a couple of ounces.
She nurses frequently, not for very long at a time. (5 minutes or a bit longer). I do not restrict her nursing times. I also co sleep with her for about 6 hours a night, and I know she is attached 99% of the time then.
She is developing right on. She was army crawling at 5 months old, sitting up at 4 months. She isn't very verbal, but does make some noises.
She just isn't growing.
I have started pumping after she feeds. I am only getting about an ounce, but I have been told to not base your milk supply on what you can pump out.
I do not give any formula (she doesn't take it anyways, from when I've tried).
I feel like my supply has to be low if she isn't getting any bigger.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
