How does your LO seem after nursing? Is he content, satisfied? Is he unusually fussy, or seem hungry more than "normal" (I put that in quotatation marks becayse at 16 days old, it's "normal" for babies to eat around the clock!).

One other thing to consider is a foremilk-hindmilk imbalance... that can cause slow weight gain. One big indicator of an imbalance is green, frothy bowel movements.
yep, all that
