she is 18 months and gained only 4 oz in 2 months. I wasa trying to wean her gradually. she has stopped asking fr bm during the day but wont make up for it with cows milk.
she wont eat much at all, so I still nurse her at night and she nurses through out, although, I know its probaby not much judging by her night diaper
Doc says wean her and try to get her to drink milk.
Easier said than done, she seems to choke on liquids all the time and only drinks cows milk when she is super thirsty like a starving day when she has not eaten anything in daycare.
Her height also came down from 75 to 50th percentile. So its obvious she is missing some nutrition.
I am scared that if I wean her, she will become skinnier and instead of helping her take to other food, she will just be like now -just worse. At least she gets some BM now.
So my question is this: I am taking domperidone since jan - tapering off last couple of months, hence the reduction in milk. Should I just go back to my original dose and just nurse her full time as a baby and let her eat what she eats ? Will she be missing any nutrients which I need to supplement ?
My diet is not so good, I try but its almost impossible to eat right -what with the hard to feed kid and trying to find a job.
I tried so hard to keep her from losing weight
