Des had a cold last week so I took him to the dr Friday to make sure he wasn't seriously sick and in need of medicine since the weekend was coming up.
He got weighed 3x. Because they had to keep checking to see if their scales were off. Because he lost 7 oz in the past 3 months. (sigh)
So they wanted to admit him to the hospital to run bloodwork to see why he isn't keeping weight on. I explained that he's very active and crawls all the time but the dr said he shouldn't be losing weight. We got out of having to be admitted because I already have his 9 month check up scheduled for the 19th. And hopefully he gains weight.
I am suppose to be doing a calorie count to see how much he's eating and I was suppose to pump for 24 hours to see how much I'm producing (But a pump won't show as much as a baby can get out!) and Des won't take a bottle so I dunno how that was suppose to work. I just dunno what to do to please the drs!
He's about 14 1/2 lbs. He doesn't have much interest in solid foods a lot of time unless it's french fries (ha ha) or Cheerios or puffs. Oh and banana. He kind of eats egg yolk and he did have cracker today. But it's not like I can force him to eat! And honestly I haven't been doing the calorie count because I wouldn't know where to start with how little solids he eats and I can't measure how much he nurses (but I know I make enough for him because when he's done I can still squeeze some out if I wanted to!!!)
It's just frustrating.
So hopefully he gains weight by his next appt and they'll be happy but right now I wouldn't hold my breath.
