i thought i was done worrying about her weight when she gained all of her birthweight back (at 2 weeks), but now we again seem to be stuck in a rut with regards to weight gain. She had been gaining 1/2 a pound a week, up until the end of May. That also coincides with her beginning to STTN. Between the end of May and today, she's only gained 1 pound. She is now 15 weeks old; we EBF and I don't know what to do. She spits up a lot. A whole lot (my mom, who had 4 kids, even commented that it was more than what's normal when she watched her the other day). I've cut out a whole bunch of foods in an attempt to figure out what's causing her to spit up; it may have cut the spitting up down a little bit but not completely.
I've been going to lactation support classes up until last week (now that I've started back at work I can't attend them) and our weighted feedings were about 3 ounces. I'm wondering if it has to do with her STTN. She sleeps almost 12 hours. We get in about 5-6 feedings a day; that's only 15-18 ounces. Sometimes she'll want to cluster feed in the evening (not all the time), so maybe she gets a little bit more but not much. I don't know what to do at this point; does anyone have suggestions? I'm really afraid to talk to the pediatrician; i'm afraid they will just tell me to put her on formula.
