She was born at 6lbs10.4 oz
She lost 7% of her weight in a day.
Then she lost more, but only up to about 8% the next day
Then she lost a liiitle more and was up to 8.6% the following day
Then she GAINED ! she was weighing in around 6lbs3.4oz. This is around 4 days old.
Then she lost juust a little bit more & finally when we were discharged at the hospital she weighed 6lbs3.1oz
Monday - went to doctors, she weighed 6lbs2.8oz
Wednesday(today) - went again, weighed 6lbs2oz. So STILL losing !
She is nursing every 2-3 hrs. My supply was high over the weekend and then Monday they told me to start pumping on one side , feeding on the other. Okay, so I am. But now my supply has gone down. I was pumping about 3oz while she nursed.
This morning at 9am I got about 3oz pumped, then 1pm I got 2oz between BOTH sides, then around 3pm I pumped for like a half hour or more and got 1oz between BOTH sides.
I'm drinking fluids, eating plenty... She's still nursing so why is my supply going down ? Shouldn't it be going up, specially considering I'm pumping now too ? Monday and Tuesday I was getting 3oz every time. I don't even feel full in the boobs anymore. They want me to nurse her and then give her a bottle after so she'll hopefully gain weight but is don't think I can keep up !
