Hello All My baby is 5 days old, he was quite big when born (9lb 14oz) and by day 3 he'd gone down to 9lb 3oz. The mw came out this morning and he's only gained an ounce so is now 9lb 4oz. She says he will need to be back at his birth weight before discharging me and doesn't seem to think it'll happen by 10 days. I've been feeling OK about his feeding, he got the hang of it straight away and I've felt it's been going OK. Sometimes he'll feed constantly, other times it's every couple of hours and other times it'll be longer. He was a good birth weight and I wasn't worried until the mw came out! One of the main issues is that he tends to feed for a few minutes and then fall alseep again (though during the night he had 4 really good long feeds). She was saying I should wake him to feed him more but he's just really sleepy and I thought this was pretty normal for a newborn. I had the usual advice of making sure I was eating and sleeping enough (which I feel I am) but otherwise I'm at a loss as to what to do or think. Anyway, sorry that was a bit long, any ideas would be gratefully received. She's made me worry which has annoyed me a bit as I was feeling really relaxed and OK about everything.
