Well, my friend went to the ped. today and her little one has gained 4 oz! And, he's not constipated. But, as I wrote with my original post, he's not pooping. The dr. said to "get him on a schedule" but my friend said she was advised by friends to feed him on demand. The dr. said that was "only in the beginning" (this little one is 3 weeks old, mind you). My friend's nipples are getting sore because she's trying to stick to one side so her ds will get the hindmilk. She says he's really only nursing for 5 to 10 minutes but wants to stay on forever. His latch is getting to be less and less but he won't be put off the breast. She's just about ready to give up and the two lc's she's called have not called her back. Any advice would be very welcome!!!!!!!
