Hopefully they figure it out.

Re: "He's so skinny!" and "He's so tiny!"

I hope it's nothing too complicated to figure out. It might just be he's not nursing as efficiently as he needs to and needs more feeds or a top up with a bottle of bm afterwards.

The wet diaper thing, I think, is a difficult measure. It's hard to know 'how wet' a diaper is.

Thinking good thoughts for you!

You can't win for losing -- my babies were big, and people would always say, "He's so big, he must be ready for food, your milk is not enough..." I know my friends with thin babies get, "He's so skinny, he needs food, your milk is not enough..."
I couldn't have said it any better than birdinhand. My lo is big and I keep hearing that he's starving and I'm not giving him enough solids. It's annoying.
