Re: Need encourgement

congrats on choosing to breastfeed!

let me tell you i was panicked that i wasn't nursing right, too, because i never breastfed a baby before and all the women around me quit very quickly.

he should stay at or around the same percentile. just because he's lower % doesnt make him slow to grow! the only concern is if he is steadily gaining weight and then suddenly stops gaining or decreases drastically. that's when we worry about percentile
if you think he has a good latch and he seems full after eating you are all set!
