i did see a lll leader, and i consulted with an lactation consultant. both did not see anything wrong latchwise or tonguewise. they advised me to block-feed to get good hindmilk supply.
i did pumping and supplementing, but for one thing she slept for about seven hours after the feeds, so she just missed at least one feeding. sh does not really feed if a wake her up, so that does not help either. the other is that she just refused the bottles ( i used the calma bottle) after a couple of days and i am to dumb to use the other systems, the breast system does not work as well ( for us)
dd is drinking quite shortly, one feeding is much shorter than with both the others. they just kept on feeding and feeding for hours, she does not do that. she is feeding for 5 - 10 minutes mostly and than just licks on the breastt without actually feeding. the icblc consultant advised to pump before feeding to get more hindmilk, but it did not seem to make a difference.
i personally think she's got reflux and does not really like to feed.
weight wise, she does gain, just very sluggishly, she is now 3700g, did gain just 100 g in two weeks though. from her lowest weight she gained around 10g/day, which is not too bad, is it? she appears to be skinnier now though. i can see her ribs and i am not sure if you are supposed to see them. dd1 was 1 kg heavier at the same age, and she was tiny.
i´ll try the 24 hr input chart. i am not sure if i can actually manage to do that, i would have to stay near the scale for 24 hrs, and that is really difficult with the other two kids ...
i don´t think that she sleeps to conserve energy since she is not sleepy at daytime, just at night. she is meeting all her milestones and is not below the 3rd centile weightwise (yet)
