Dd is 15 days old and had jaundice for the first week, and my milk took a long time to come in. She was 8lbs 9oz at birth, then her weight dropped to 7lbs 15oz at 4 days. Now she's at 8lbs 8oz (so she's gained about 9oz in 11 days). She has lots of wet and poopy diapers, and she's nursing a fair amount, but I'm second-guessing myself and my milk production. She's still pretty sleepy, and her latch is a little sloppy, and it's hard to get her to eat sometimes. Should I be trying harder to get her to gain? Should I be calling an lc?
