Re: Newborn loosing weight...HELP!

I had to check who wrote this again cause other than the weights it was exactly the same thing for us. My DD was born ay 37w1d, she had jaundice and would not gain weight, she actually stayed right around 6lbs for 2 entire weeks. The jaundice started going down but it wasnt until she was 4 weeks old that she finally started gaining. I think it was related to the jaundice but I did pump 10 minutes after she ate from whatever breast she ate on, and took fenugreek, once in a while she still acted hungry after eating so we'd supplement her with what I had pumped. Trust the wet/dirty diapers, I kept tract of them and they surpassed what the minimums were, for some reason she just didn't gain. Hang in there!
