I am, literally, ready to cry. Baby has a “Failure to thrive”, not gaining enough weight. She isn’t eating enough. But what’s really breaking my heart is completely discontinuing breastfeeding. I still nurse her at night, its so much easier. But the thought is that she’s falling asleep & not eating. I think she looks great, she’s happy, pudgy, crazy cute! But her weight gain is too slow & she is gradually dropping on the growth charts, both height & weight. I wish I knew how my first progressed, that pediatrician was a lot more relaxed, as long as the baby looked well & was happy. Only my first wasn’t a happy baby.
Now, the question is, do I continue to TED diet for me? I was able to determine that pork is a problem for the baby. Determining that much and possibility of finding more makes me want to comtinue. Do I try to go back to pumping? Do I just let it go in the hopes of better medication for me. Is it my medicine slowing her down?
