This happened to me on 9/29/06.
My baby was born on 8.20.06 and she weighed 7lbs 15oz and was down to 7lbs80z when she was discharged from the hospital. She saw the pediatrician for her first visit on the 22nd and was at 7lbs 8oz. When I brought her back on 9/29/06 for her 1 month check up she weighed 10lbs 6oz and I thought she was doing great! However the pediatrician said that she wanted to see her gain more weight and that I needed to start supplementing more. At the time I was giving DD one bottle of formula per day because I didn't know any better and I thought she wasn't getting enough. Well when I came home I started to do some research and I realized that I had messed up my supply by supplementing in the first place. I started to pump more frequently and use fenugreek and in about a week I didn't need to supplement at all anymore. DD is putting out plenty of wet diapers a day but she usually only poops every 2 to 3 days and has always been like this since day one. The thing is that usually on day 2 she is straining to make a poop so I know there is some in there, it just seems like she has a hard time getting it out. When it does come though it is a normal mustard yellow color and it is liquidy and seedy.
Now I am nervous because we have an appointment for tomorrow and I know DD has gained beause she is almost out of her stage 1 pampers (which go up to 14lbs) and many of 3month outfits no longer fit. My thing is how much weight do they expect these babies to gain? Isn't almost three pounds in one month a good amount of weight? I really don't want to supplement DD with formula and I am very happy that I have managed to get her off of it. I even have enough milk to pump an extra bottle a day and if she seems hungry at night I will offer it to her. This doctor is makes me feel less confidant about my ability to feed my baby. As I am typing this I realize that it is time to find a new one. Why are some pediatricians so non-supportive of breastfeeding?
