Re: Bad weight gain

I understand feeling the pressure from the pedi but please get a 2nd opinion before starting solids. I'd hate to see her get more issues from starting too early.

I'd start with the LC or IBCLC and make sure her latch is correct. The seemingly best latch could be wrong and that could cause her not to transfer milk well. Does she act super hungry a lot? I'd also look deeper into the reflux.
