I need information. My six month old is showing a strange weight gain pattern. I have a good baby scale at home. Every morning I weigh him first thing when he wakes up. I also weigh him at the end of the day before he goes to bed. By the evening weight-taking he is around 6-7 ounces LESS than he was at the beginning of the day. So, despite frequent nursing, he is losing weight during the day.
I am nursing very frequently during the day, at least every two hours. It sounds like he is swallowing more or less the whole time. I can't figure out what's going on.
I am just starting solids, only chicken broth right now. (I am following the GAPS baby solids plan). He doesn't eat much of it. It just doesn't seem like he is getting adequate nutrition from my breastmilk. I eat plenty, take nettle infusion every day, drink water, etc.
Does anyone know what the problem could be? And does this mean that I may have to supplement with formula to get him to gain weight? At this age I know he should be gaining about 1/2 ounce/day. I am very concerned.
