i'm a little concerned about baby's weight gain after tongue clipping. we also started cranio sacral therapy. good news is that she is not clamping down on my nipple as much and i am no longer using the nipple shield. also she is now transferring more milk, prior to clipping it was about an ounce, now it's about 1.5 oz.
10/11 tongue clipped
10/13 weight 6lb13oz, 6 wks
10/20 7lb, 7wks
10/27 7lb 1.7 oz (i had just changed her poopy diaper before this weigh in so think some of the poop took away her "weight?"), 8wks
baby was 5lb15oz at birth, and she was full term (39wk2days). my husband and i are both small, i'm 4'10, dh is 5'2.
i know most lc's and ped's recommend a 4-7oz weight gain per week but i can't help but wonder if about 3oz is ok for my baby since she has small parents??? i feed her 6x a day and dh bottle feeds her 2x (breastmilk total of 5oz)
would love to here your experiences and/or thoughts, thanks!
