So we went for Samuels Four month well baby yesterday and he is off of his growth curve in both height and weight.. I though since he seemed to be doing so well. HE plays he coos he laughes he sits with a lil support he sleeps and he wakes he pees,,,though not pooos to often that he was fine.
The dr said that if it hadnt been for having to weight him that he would be pretty much perfect but that his height and weight was off.. That I should be aiming for atleast 31 oz a day..AT LEAST the BARE MINIMUM.. Which contradicts kellymom.com... ANY WAYS
I have been giving him 12 oz at least while im at work. that is 3 4 oz bottles. He seemed fine except when his welling meaning caregiver made the hole bigger and it came to fast for awhile. "though I didnt know all of this. So I tried several things, one was to replace all nipples and try a little more in his bottles and that seemed to work. But he still pretty much took 12 oz or it was a lil more cuz the used water?? Well now hes off and instead of a 6 month check up he has to come back in four weeks. To see if hes off more or what.
The lactation lady happend to be in the hall and heard me ask about breastpumps. and she came in...She got someone to prescribe me Reglan?? and I rented a pump... I had gotten one from our local wic,, a bailey nature three.. BUt i was told the madella was much better so im renting one medela lactina electric plus for one month at 40..I havent seen that much of a diff with this pump.. except a little more hands free and less loud. BUT THEN AGAIN this is the first no baby trail run. So maybe this afternoon i will see and increas.
I was told that i should be producing more than 2 or 3 oz at a time also I thought that was the norm. But was told no you should be pumping more in a session And the dr also told me that by six months or so he wants Samuel eating six oz in a sitting...and That they dont agree with the whole wait till baby is six months either though it wouldnt hurt the baby to wait that long but that five months "next month would be good to start him...
Hes four months about 2 weeks and he ways 11.9 pounds his heads big enough its 16. and a half i do believe. Sorry I was in
Im cried and cried. I guess he was on a good growth till i stratred work again? not sure and sorry for the vent but Im scared Imma have to supplement him. Because come april i will have to come back to work four days a week. i am every other day at mon wed and friday.
I started taking fenugreek abouta week ago..but wasnt taking enough because i wasnt smelling like it i went from 3 cap 3x a day and went up to about 5..so yesterday i started taking 10 capsules.. But friday Today im supposed to start the reglan.. PLEASE PRAY FOR BABY AND I..
Has anyone one else tried reglan?? did it work for you
