Trouble gaining weight

This is my 3rd baby, but first time successfully nursing so far. With my first two, we never even made it home from the hospital nursing b/c of medical issues. Ellie was born at 9lbs 10oz, but today at her 2wk visit she was 8lb 12oz when we first weighed her. They had me nurse her & reweigh, then she was 9 even. Dr wants me to feed her 1oz formula with a syringe after each feeding until she goes back for weight check Thursday. She seems to be growing well otherwise. Any suggestions on anything else I can do in addition to the formula? Just kind of hurt to realize she's not gaining like she should be
