I have a 2 month old daughter and she was gaining alot of weight at the beginning of life, over what most children gain and now she only gained two ounces in like three weeks or so.... they told me that my breast milk supply may be low and before i had an abundance, i do feel less full.. why would i just drop in milk supply? and also her wet diapers are fine, like ten a day.. i am worried she is not getting enough... and one more thing, she is not pooping normal it has been like 5 days is this normal?
thanks for your answers....

When your supply syncs to what your LO needs, you will feel less full. With BMs, breastfed babies can go often (7X per day) or once every 10 days or any place in between and it's all 'normal'. If you milk supply 'dropped', you would see a decrease in wet diapers. Since it hasn't, you are doing perfectly and so is your LO!
Gaining 2 ounces in 3 weeks is something I feel you should follow up on. Typical weight gain is .5 - 1.5 ounces per day at this stage. You'd expect a minimum gain of 10 ounces over 3 weeks. It might be related to her BM pattern though. Will your doctor charge if you were to bring her in and just check her weight? I wouldn't want you to wait very long before weight is checked again.
