Thanks again everyone. We've only been back a couple days. He's (appearing) to feed MUCH better..no more hurting me thank god! Everyone tells me he appears to be latching well n feeding well n appears full after each feed...he's certaining emptying my boobs that's for sure.
Sadly tho we've been working with a paed n he's still not gaining weight n they can't work out why. He's had blood tests etc n nothing is showing up. In the last 2 wks he's only gained 120gm n is still under his birth weight they said he's in the healthy range which is good thank god. n hex VERY alert!
He got a cold last week n wasn't feeding well so I'm hoping that's why he didn't put much on.
But now I'm being sent to take him for a sweat test for cystic fibrosis so I'm mega petrified about this! spent the day trying not to stress n cry..but easier said than done
I've been put on the prescription drugs to boost my milk as well to try everything we can!
I'm just lost...no one seems to know y he won't gain weight ESP since all I feel I do is feed feed feed atm :-/
Thanks again for all ur support ladies!
