Re: Bad weight gain

I would stay far away from solids at their age. Even when babies start solids at the recommended age (6-8months say) it's not primarily for nutrition and weight gain. If you're really worried I would def. see an IBCLC as suggested. If you end up needing tosupplement I would do sowith an SNS (either with Pumped Milk, Donor Milk, or Formula) or a curved feeding syringe unless she takes bottles without issue.

I hope this was a fluke and things work themselves out mama!
