My son is a little over a week old. He was 7lbs 10oz at birth and as of today he is 6lbs 11oz so that is almost a pound loss which ends up being 14% of his body weight. He is formula fed and is eating 16-18oz a day. I go back to the doctor in the morning but she said come monday if he isn't at least the same weight or a weight gain she will be sending us to the childrens hospital for testing. Im trying not to freak out but its hard! Anyone else went through this?
Update-My baby was admitted to the childrens hospital yesterday! After watching him for 24 hours and him still losing they came to me tonight and said he was not eating enough calories so they are mixing his formula different now so it has higher calories. Im not sure how long we will be here but its going to be a while! They said he should be havving 450 to 500 calories a day. Regular formula has 20 calories per ounce and now he is getting 22 per ounce and he will be on that one to two days then they will go up to 24 calories per ounce and hopefully keep him on that. I will update when I find more out!
