    I'm off to the MHCN today for a weigh in with bubs and I guess we will have to see how I go from there. I'm really pleased to hear that the motilium may still work for me. Will stop back in to update. Fingers crossed!

    So I really didn't find that trip to the MCHN very helpful. Yes, DS was weighed and measured. He has only gained 150grams in 10 days. But as for practical advice. What a fail. Waste of time and just frustrating. I waited half an hour past my appointment for nothing. Poor DS was so tired. I was basically scolded for my son sleeping too long. He has 5 feeds a day and if thought this was the right amount. Nobody else has said there was anything wrong there. He has 4 feeds through the day and 1 overnight. So many differing opinions. Mum is now pushing me to start him on solids and I'm just getting so confused. I just want to bury myself. I never in a thousand years I would have the term 'failure to thrive' thrown at me.

    Can you offer bub more feeds? I do think 5 feeds a day is not enough. I fe 1-3hrly during the day even if bub didn't ask. Babies will refuse to feed if they aren't hungry.

    Btw solids are less calorie dense than bm.

    I was doing 3 hourly feeds and then at karitane (at 15 weeks) they had me change to 4 hourly. This is when everything started to go downhill. We are now doing 3.5 hourly sometime a little closer to 3. But it's hard to offer 3 hourly again due to his naps. He sometimes naps only 40 mins. Sometimes it's 2 hours and that means he went 4 hours between feeds. He just doesn't seem to ask for more feeds, just a bigger feed at feed time. I'm going to try and squeeze in another feed but not sure how that will go. I have another appointment at a different MCHN on Friday and this one I know is an LC. Hopefully there will be some light at the end of the tunnel there.

    Just offer a boob after every nap, or whenever you want to sit down.

    You can't overfeed a bf baby. I'm sorry your mchn was not helpful.
