MY DD is being very slow to gain. She was born two months ago at 6 pounds, 2 ounces and now is 7 pounds, five ounces. She's grown about two inches in length and is developmentally hitting milestones on or ahead of schedule. I met with her pediatrician and an LC. She is getting adequate amounts of milk from nursing, supply isn't the issue. They both encouraged me to offer one to two ounces of formula after feedings to see if she starts to gain. I occassionally do formula because I can't pump enough to keep her in breastmilk when I'm at work. When I worked on Sunday for eight hours, she burned through my 32 ounce supply.
Anyway, questions. Has anyone been told their breastmilk may not have enough calories? Is there a way to up the caloric content (I'm eating enough, lots of fats and protein, but would be willing to reevaluate)? Has anyone had supplementing help with the weight gain? She also sleeps through the night and is soooo not interested in feeding then, I've tried waking her up and she just comfort nurses herself back to sleep.
