on average how long does it it take for a baby to get back to their birth weight?
my son is 9 days old. he is getting plenty of pee diapers but is down to one stool a day. i supplement (donor milk)once mid morning if he isnt poopy when he wakes up (2oz) and once at night before bed to try to get him to poop before we go to bed. my lactation consultant wants 3 poopy diapers a day so should i up his supplement? he seems to be gaining okay but not stooling enough. i also can increase the domperidone but have only been taking it a few days so i am not sure if its a little early to do that.
here are his weights so far:
birth weight: 8 pounds 10 oz
lowest weight: 7 pounds 12 oz
weight pre tongue tie on day 7: 7 pounds 15 oz
tongue clipped day 8
weight today on day 9: 8 pounds even
