We had Laszlo's 2 month check up yesterday! He's hit all of his milestones for two months (and according to my copy of What to Expect the First Year, all of his three month ones, too!). His latest tricks are pushing himself up at a 90 degree angle during tummy time (like the yoga pose cobra) and grabbing my hair.
He weighed in at 11 lbs 13 ounces and was 23 inches long, and his head is now 17 inches around. I'm still at PP weight, which means I exited the holidays with zero gained or lost.
I was frankly surprised that he wasn't heavier. He actually only gained 1 lb in the last three weeks. The practitioner was really pleased since he's so healthy, but Warren and I realized we're still a little concerned.
We're still doing breastfeeding with about a 2-3 ounce supplement afterwards. After the appointment, we've bumped it up to about a 4 ounce supplement. His latch is PERSISTENTLY shallow (and he doesn't have either a lip or tongue tie), and I'm really beginning to wonder if he's just incredibly inefficient and virtually all of the breastmilk he gets is from my pumping yields.
I'm honestly really, really tempted to quit breastfeeding. I know that the small amount of breastmilk he gets from me is really valuable, but I have to work SO hard (2 hours total a day on the pump, 9 fenugreek tablets a day) to get that amount. Everyone around me supports me stopping and formula feeding, and I do believe that I've literally tried everything humanly possible (except for a non-fda approve pharmaceutical domperidone) but I just don't know...thoughts?
