My little peanut was up to 6lbs 5oz!!! When we left the hospital his weight had dropped to 5lbs 9oz (down from his birth weight of 6lbs 3oz). I was so glad he gained! He's still so tiny. He still swims in his newborn clothes.
The lactation consultant wanted the ped to check his tongue to see if it needs clipped, Ped did not agree. She said it wasn't too bad and would stretch. She said if he wasn't gaining weight in the next two weeks then she would re-evaluate the need if it's affecting his feeding. I think it is still affecting his latch somewhat. I still have pain when feeding. If I use a nipple shield he doesn't get full and wants to eat 45 minutes later so I can't use it.
