Tanner is almost 4 weeks old and he has just now gotten back to his birth weight. He is not dehydrated. He has 10-12 wet and dirty diapers a day. He has grown a little taller and his head has grown 1 cm. But for some reason he will just not gain weight. He was 1 oz away from his birth weight last week. The Pedi wanted me to pump and give him a bottle to see how much he would eat after he nursed. We've been doing that a couple times a day. He will take anywhere from 2-4oz after an hour long nursing session.
The Pedi is worried because she said she wouldn't think he would take more than 4oz total per feeding at this point in time, so if he is nursing for an hour and then taking 3oz after obviously he's not getting enough from me. The problem isn't me, as I'm producing plenty of milk. But for some reason he isn't able to get the milk from me.
