Update...weighed in yesterday with an LC...16lbs and did a quick short feed and gained 2 oz. So at minimum, he is getting at least 2 oz. and that was a quick feed.
Went to pedi today and her scale read 15 lbs and 13 oz. he was naked for this weigh in however and not with the LC's scale... I'm going with 16lbs
Pedi was happy. Thats umm...almost a POUND in 2 weeks I guess something is working and of course adding the solids and doing 2 meals a day helped. Also, could have been a growth spurt? Who knows...maybe he was storing things and then just shot up a bit? Not sure...
If I can keep this up for the next 5 months...I'll be happy. Not that I'm stopping BF at 12 months but at least at that point, the threat or fear of being told I have to supplement will disappear and pedi will ask him to drink milk of some sort and eat some eggs etc. I love BF past a year and however long after that - if my first DS was having a picky eating day, at least I knew he was getting BM to cover our butts.
I also gave her my WHO chart and asked her to make a copy for her to keep - which the LC plotted for me - 15th percentile. Much better than 10th...so I'll take it!
I'm not crazy about the Reglan. I initially thought, what if I just took it for a week or so just to up the supply then stop but I'm reluctant to even do that. I really really want the domperidone but either med, DH isn't crazy about me taking meds for that (even though I informed him it was safer than Tylenol). He just thinks (especially after weigh in today) that everything is fine and keep doing what I'm doing...
Thanks for everyone's listening and suggestions/support. It really means a lot when going through a rough time of stress.
LC is sending the gastro doc a report on the baby just to sort of give her the information. Hopefully that will inform her not to make moms panic if there isn't a huge issue.
