My son is 2w1d and is now 11oz below his birth weight. At 5 days he was 7lbs 3 oz and today he was 7lbs. His dr is now wanting us to feed him more often. He eats every 3-4 hours and refuses to eat if he's not ready. She wants us to offer a bottle if he refuses to eat. We go back Monday and if he's not gaining then we have to supplement with formula. I do not want to put him on formula. His ped is very bf friendly. Why would he be losing weight? He has plenty of wet and dirty diapers and eats good when he's ready to eat.
