    So many things I want to ask you. How many wet nappies does she have during the day? Are you feeding on demand? Are there any latch issues? Have you tried breastmilk top ups?

    Ultimately as long as your baby is fed that is all that matters. But reach out for support - it is here if you need it.
    Thank you...she usually has 6-8 wet nappies and 1 poo each day. Yep - feeding on demand - she has initiated her own routines but I'm happy to feed whenever she wants. No latch issues - she's been great at it since birth! I did some expressing in the first few weeks but i haven't for a while now...i guess i should get back into that hey. Hmm. I only lasted 2 months bf my DS and was feeling great about it this time but since the weigh in i just feel like i actually suck!

    She was quite jaundiced so maybe that has not helped her slow weight gains huh?! At what point should i be really worrying? She is still between 15th and 3rd percentile on the growth charts.

    I am really hanging out for next weeks episode of Wentworth after just watching last nights episode. Why do I have to wait a whole freaking week?!

    Obviously you need to take medical advice - I'm no doctor! But 6-8 wet nappies is great so it doesn't sound like she's not getting enough milk. Still jaundiced is an issue - it can make them sleepy - has your gp/MCHN given you any reasons why she still has jaundice?

    My DS2, almost 4, is not even on the chart for weight and just sits between 5-10th for height so don't get too stressed about that part.

    Breastfeeding is really hard. Start a thread on here so more people can see what's going on and you can give more background - someone might have something that helps!

    My DS is only just above the 3rd percentile for weight, always has been as dar as I remember. I can't remember what he was in comparison to birth around 12 months, but he just isn't a big baby. I kept trying to feed him up but he just wasn't going to put on the weight. Your DD might just be a slight little thing. They told me they would only worry if he wasn't tracking. Don't stress. 😊
