I feel like I'm failing. Surely it can't be normal to not gain anything in 3wks. Not be back to her birth weight by now. Her weight is 10%ile and her length is 25th and head is 50th.
She has tons of wet and dirty dipes. Like probably 6 stools and 10 or more wets everyday. Her stool is yellow liquid, urine looks pale yellow.
Pediatrician wants me to pump exclusively and feed her with bottles to see how many oz she's taking and see if she gains anything doing that and we'll recheck her weight in 4 days. So experts what do you think
UPDATE: well 4 days later she weighed 8 lbs even. Then today she weighed 8lbs 13oz!! That's going from 7-7, to 8-13 in 8 days. I did have an IBCLC come out to the house. Not a ton of help though we were doing things correctly. So the dr said she's not tongue tied so I don't know why she's not able to transfer milk - enough milk effectively it's like she tires herself out and can't finish a feed despite me doing everything I can to keep her awake, and even when she has nursed for like an hour, she acts like she's starving afterwards. Idk. But the LC gave me a baby scale to use to see how much she's really getting from me. She'll be 6 wks old on Thursday.
