Bad day

Farrah had her four month check up today and I found out she has only gained five ounces in the past two months. The pedi made me feel horrible and told me she was malnourished and sickly. I was so upset an crying and I knew all of the stuff she was saying wasn't true but I was so upset that I couldn't even say anything. So after I got home an bawled my eyes out even more I called the IBLCL at the hospital and I talk to her for awhile on the phone and I have any appointment tomorrow. After talking to her I found out our pedi is not pro breastfeeding. We are moving at the end if the month so we will be switching pedis cuz I am not driving 45 min back to the dr. I am just so upset and glad that I have knowledge an didn't just throw in the towel. The lc said that they weren't even going to call the pedi for the orders they we going straight to my OB. By the way me baby is healthy and rolling and cooing and babbling. Almost sleeping thru the night and an overall. Very happy baby. Thanks for reading it has been a rough afternoon. Sorry no pics I am on mobile.

How have diapers been?  Is this the same scale with the same amount of clothes?

YOu never ever tell a parent a child is malnourished and sickly, there are better ways to say that the weight gain is a concern.

Did she grow in height?

Always weighted naked and she is wetting about 7 dipes a day. She told me that she is only pooping 1-2 times a week because her body has nothing to get rid of it needs everything it is getting. She also said he skin is just hanging on her body and it is not.

Not sure if it is the same scale last time we went in the hall and this time they brought it in the room.

How is she on milestones? Growing in length, head circumfrence? Do you think she has only gained that much or do you think it could be from a different scale (I can tell when my dd has gained anything, even just a few ounces). How are her dirty diapers?

It sounds like this pedi is not good with breastfeeding management.. good for you getting in touch with (what sounds like) a great LC. Sorry you had such a rough day!

She is rolling both ways, can get toys into her mouth, cooing and talking. She grew about an inch and I am pretty sure her head grew cuz I think she stayed about the same percentage. I really thought she had gained some weight. I know that she is a peanut but she is starting to fit into he 3-6 month clothes.

OK discredit this weight then becuase if not the same scale who knows.AND I do not trust scales that are moved around..this changes the calibration and throws off weights by up to a lb

She also said he skin is just hanging on her body and it is not.this doctor is RUDE, did she say anything else insulting becuase so far thats all I hear are insults.  What was the doctors advice on helping with weight gain?
