    Have you checked the whos breast fed weight gain guide lines?


    Australian blue book stats were done at a time when a large percentage of babies were formula fed and thus are often not 'right' or fair on breast fed babies (who can gain weight differently to formula fed babies as breast and formula are different)

    Thanks for the link - from what I can see Ds still needs to gain weight. He is 12 days old and weighing 3.220kg,
    Is that correct?

    Sorry to hear ds hasn't put on weight. I'd suggest u NOT weighing him daily - it can put a lot of stress on you which you don't need. Just feed him as often as possible and I'm sure it will pick up.

    There are some tips here to help bubs take in more milk
    http://www.koraorganics.com/blog/liv...super-sleeper/

    How much is 'not enough'? What size are you and your partner?

    Does bub feed from one side or two?

    Some babies are slower to put weight on. If they are putting weight on (not losing it), enough wet nappies and feeding ok then you might just need to offer the breast more often OR it could be baby is just settling into his genetically determined weight.

    My son was born at 95th percentile for weight on the charts and is now at 4 months is just below the 50th. My DD followed a similar pattern so i am much less concerned this time.

    Keep asking questions, you are doing a great job.

    define enough weight... some babies put on weight differently to adults (they have unique metabolisms). remember 6-8 wet/dirty nappies is indicative of sufficient supply.
