So today we went to the doctors to get shots for dulany and we got her stats. She's 24 inches long (she's starting to get longer which is nice!) but she was only 12 lbs 1 oz. 2 months ago she was 11 lbs 6 oz... soooo she hasnt gained much weight. These past 1-2 weeks its been rough, she doenst want to eat and I think its cause she's tired and what not. Its been getting really frustrating. (she will latch on but then not want to eat.. and she does it like 10 times before i give up) When the doctor told us he said that we needed to try to suppliment with formula. Its too hard to pump too. The problem is, we tried formula.. a while back and today with tom feeding her which ithought might help. Nothin. She will not take it what so ever! i dont know what to do. It freaked me out because he said she was in the 8th percentile for weight. I swear im not starving my baby, but when we look at it htat way it makes it seem like it.
So my question for you moms out there who have any clue on how to get your child to start taking formula PLEASE let me know. Its kinda stressing me out!
and ive rulled out the possiblities of eating something she didnt like, because i havent changed my diet at all... so i dont think thats it.So any advice would be great. Thanks!
