Even if she isn't dont stop and don't stress. Kinsley left the nicu at 5.13 when her birth weight was 6.10 they only let her go because she had gained a couple ounces back but when you weren't allowed to eat for almost 24 hours I don't know what they expected. Anyways. We weren't back to birth weight until 4-5 weeks. My doctor didn't stress it because she was gaining slowly and steadily. She still is a slow gainer and barely 17 lbs at 14.5 months.
Everything can be worked through. You got this! I cut dairy, caffeine and spice. Then slowly added stuff back. I just had to watch my dairy intake the most.

My bebes are weaned but I hear this every day that I am at the health dept. I work part time as a BF counselor. Spicy foods is the biggest one, dairy and caffeine are the other two that I hear all the time.



One lady called to say that when she eats sour stuff her baby screams but she couldn't really say what sour stuff she eats. I'm not sure if she's eating gummy worms all day or what.

Don't stress if it isn't. They would like it to be...but if it isn't, it isn't always a huge deal. I went this really neat conference about BF on Friday, sooo much of what they tell you isn't exactly true. One of the speakers there, Dr. Jane Morton was showing us research about babies not gaining birth weight back in 2 weeks and how 2 weeks is the median time for BF babies but it can range from 10-17 days without concern.

Did they say anything about pooping?



She hasn't gone in 24 hours. :( She is peeing enough and nursing constantly.

Yes, that color comfort was more important than amount. "taxi-cab mustard yellow" by day 5. Some breastfed babies go up to a week! :shock: breast milk can be so efficiently used by her wittle body, there is little to no waste.



This lady is brilliant, experienced and just really neat. Stanford and Chapel Hill are doing a lot of interesting and new research with breastmilk and breastfeeding. Did you know that fluid intake does not directly effect milk production? I had no idea! Neither does a specific calorie intake.

This quiz is for slightly younger babies but this is her checklist. http://newborns.stanford.edu/Breastfeeding/FeedingChecklist.html

She did just poop thankfully.

Even though DD is not breast fed, during her bedtime feed around 730-8pm she screams and cries and that is her ONLY feed she will do this. She's 2 months old tomorrow and it's been going on for about 1.5 wks. I'm assuming it's a bit of collic or she just wants to be cuddled.
