As of today, my son is 17 days old. (Born 12/18) He was born at 8lbs 1oz, left the hospital at 7lb 6oz, and weighed in for his one week at 7lb 10oz (Which was apparently good according to the Dr.)
At his 2 week checkup, he dropped 2 oz to 7lb 8oz. And, since he was nursing, the dr wants to figure out if I'm not putting out enough. So, she has me pumping and then bottle feeding it. So, starting today I have to keep a log of my output. Here's what I have so far:
(My left breast lags behind my right in production, if it matters at all.)
Does this look about right? I'm afraid I'm not putting out enough, especially as I'm only keeping about one feeding ahead. (Making me worry for when I go back to work.)
Is there any way to improve my output? Or am I doing ok and worrying over nothing?
