Last time we saw the pedi she was fine with his gain but now he is in the 8th percentile.
Nurse, flange the lips, chest to your chest. His chin over his sternum (do not hold so his neck is turned) and hold him across you. Parallel. Side lying is actually one of the best nursing positions.

Those things help, a lot. Make sure that lower lip is like a fish, too.
