Somehow, Elijah has managed to only put on 17g over the past two weeks. This is a drastic reduction in his weight gain and gives me some cause for concern. Is he not getting enough to eat? Is he spewing so much that it negates the amount he does eat? He feeds for a good 40-50 minutes every feed and the clinic nurses seemed to think that his feeding pattern is fine.
What has caused this plateau? Who knows. We've been given an appointment next week to review his progress. In the meantime, I've been told to slow down another gear in the hope it might boost my supply a little more. Slow down? I already do next to no housework and spend a vast amount of time on the net when I'm not feeding, changing or playing with the boy. If I slow down any more, I might as well be comatose!
Edited on 12 July to add:
Elijah's current weight of 4.8kg is at the 1st percentile on the new WHO charts. Hmmmm.
