She's 11 days old now. Birthweight was 7 lb 2 oz. lowest weight was at 4 days and was 6 13. Today she was 6 14.5. Dr is diagnosing her Failure to thrive ): said I need to see the ibclc at hospital. So I went, her advice was nurse for 15 minutes then pump and bottle feed whatever I get. If I don't get at least 2 oz, give formula. She also had her bili levels checked again and they are at 18 so we are getting a bili blanket. My thing is, she isn't nursing well because she's so sleepy from jaundice and she has colic. I don't want her to end up preferring the bottle because it's less work, but I don't want them saying ftt either. I don't know what to do.
