    Default Baby just losing weight

    Good morning ladies, I seek your opinion, advice.

    I'm seeing a ped tomorrow, not sure what he will do, but my girl is just losing weight. She lost just over 100 grams in 4 days. Is this normal?

    Is she a newborn? If not, how old is she?
    How much does she weigh?
    Has she been unwell or had anything change (feeding)?

    Additional movement will definitely burn more calories, but I'm not sure if that on its own would cause that loss. Does she still have plenty of breastmilk or formula?

    She is formula fed, has 3 good bottles of 210ml now. Struggle with the 4th. I know it's not enough. Which is why I'm hoping I get a special formula.

    What kind of special formula? There is prescription formulas for babies with severe food allergies, but it tastes disgusting, lol, so she might drink even less of it. What are her bowel movements like? If she has very frequent (many per day) explosive, frothy poos, it could indicate malabsorption or food allergies. What is your and DH's build like? Is her height % similar to her weight? Does she look healthy in her skin tone, or does she look 'sickly', does her sin sag and look loose around the bum/ thighs
