Is Logan still nursing? He might help boost your supply if you can get him to nurse. I have also not read the thread in its entirety, but are you nursing him naked? Keeping him stimulated and awake? I'm not doubting what you're doing, just offering suggestions. Ds was jaundiced and sleepy (not too bad) and dd was REALLY sleepy at first and it took quite a bit of effort to keep her awake long enough to nurse. Anyway...pm me or lmk if there is anything else I can do. I have a BAB here if you want me to reference it.

Is it warm enough to take him outside to nurse - during the day???? Many moms I've talked to say this works SOOO well for them...
Also - know some babies perk right up when 'stimulated' and some 'withdraw'. Colby might be one that needs more noise or less noise... You're working so hard to find a good solution.
As far as weight gain goes. what was he at birth? we're you on lots of IV's? What's his weight pattern been??
Are you drinking enough?

I lost 22 lbs in 8 months... with a bit of determination and common sense information from this book.
It's too cold to take him outside to nurse.
He just sleeps no matter what the stimulation so far. Last night was the first time he opened his eyes, it was 4 AM and he had nursed and had a bottle.. and perked up. We sat and looked at Christmas tree lights, it was awesome.
