OK so serenity was born at 6.14 and was at 36 and 6 days so about 3 weeks early. She was in the hospital for ten days due to an infection and her lowest weight was 6.10 well at her one and two month check her weight was still not where he thought it should be so at the two month he mentioned supplementing. So I tried to give her a few bottles of my milk and even three kinds of formula and she refused the formulas and would only take a couple sucks of my milk. Well yesterday she had a three month check, at two months she weighed 8.7 and yesterday she was 9.4 so he said its crusial for me to supplement and give her 4 bottles a day of a specific formula, one that has 24 calories per oz. Well I'm OK with one maybe two a day for awhile to see if that helps but not 4. I do feel she needs to gain a little better. But yesterday I tried again even with my milk and she's not taking the bottles, I've tried two kinds of Playtex, a tommee teepee and parents choice. Other problem is her PKU test came back saying she gas some kind if acid in balance which the Dr don't know what that is so he's re searching it plus in utero she only had two vessels instead of three so I'm thinking these issues may be behind her slow weight gain? I'm talking with a lc and will be going in to see her soon as well.
