Twice in one week I've had a massive panic about my baby's weight.
On Monday (6 days old) we were told that she'd lost 23% of her birth weight. After being told we'd probably get hospitalised and would need to rethink the breastfeeding, and then me bursting into floods of tears, the midwife weighed her again just to double check, and we were then told that it was okay and she'd only lost 7.22%.
Then on Wednesday evening, another midwife came round and said that she'd only put on 6g in two days and she should've put on at least 40. This again made me doubt breastfeeding and we ended up feeding her formula that night as I was so worried she was not getting enough food.
We then had the health visitor come on Thursday morning who weighed her again. According to these scales she'd put on 94g in one night.
I dont know know what to do. My husband wants to refuse to get her weighed again as it's clearly so unreliable. But I just want reassurance that things are on track. The breastfeeding counsellor said that it looked like breastfeeding was going well.
