RSV in 8 week old (dr wants to supplement)
born 7lbs 2oz no epi, no fluids
Lowest weight was 6lb 1oz
Had jaundice for 3 weeks on bili blanket
At 4 weeks was 7lb 1oz
Now at 8 weeks she is 7lb 13.5oz
They are suggesting admitting her to the hospital based on the results of the rsv swab. She is wheezing and very congested but is still nursing with no problems and has already had 3 wet and 1 dirty diaper since 4 am. They've already mentioned formula twice just at the drs office.
Is her slow weight gain ok considering all the other things we've faced? I thought as long as her diaper counts were good, she was ok. Oh and they weighed her before being nursed and won't weigh her again now that she ate.
