My son is 5 1/2 weeks old. Was 10lbs 5oz at birth. At 5 weeks he was 10lbs 14oz.
3 weeks prior he weighed 10lbs even. The pedi says this isnt enough of a weight gain. He wants to see at least 6.3oz a week.
I know I have a low supply, but I feed the baby ALL day. I dont know if I should stop the all day feedathons (trying to build supply by him sucking) or just supplement so he grows better. Someone told me because I had type 2 diabetes he may not have meant to be this big and would grow slower..
Im confused as what I should do, I want him to be healthy, but I dont want to deprive him. He always seems hungry, but I dont know if that is cuz he is use to sucking all day or if he is truly hungry.
Any help is appreciated
