My twin girls were born ten days past their estimated due date weighing 7 pounds and 7 #'s 13 oz.
I nurse them on demand exclusively.
At nine weeks old, they weigh 8 #'s 1 oz, and 8 #'s 8 oz. and I'm concerned. They spend ten to thirty minutes on the breast each feeding and wet about six diapers each per day. However, their bowel movements are quite irregular, only having one every one to three weeks. They are growing in length and head circumference, but their measurements are low percentiles.
Do twins gain weight more slowly than singletons? Does this sound concerning to you? I really don't want to supplement, but their health is my priority.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
