DS is 2 weeks today and we are still not at his birth weight. We are BF with some struggles and have seen 2 LC which both recommended a nipple shield and I think that is helping. He has plenty of wet and poopy diapers per day and seems satisfied after each feeding. Feedings last around 40 minutes and include a 1 oz. supplement of pumped breast milk by a supplemental nursing system. So I was pretty disappointed at his appt. with his weight and thought he would have at least gained an oz. in the past few days.
After discussing with his doctor who is amazing and is really supporting our BF efforts, he does not seemed too concerned.
Did anyone else deal with a slow weight gain? When we met with Cindi Freeman yesterday we determined he was taking in over an oz at each feeding, plus supplementing, should be enough. I have enough supply to supplement, but I don't know what else to do.
