7 week check up (xp)

So, We had our 6 week check up (a week late) and Evie is only in the 5th to 10th percentile for her weight. Between the 10th and 25th for her height and below 5th for her head circumference.

The doc confirmed an upper lip tie and could not rule out a posterior tongue tie. We are being referred to an IBCLC an hour away for confirmation and referral of treatment.

Evie is eating every 2 hours around the clock and sometimes acts hungry in between those times. She should NOT be gaining so little. No wonder she looked small to me for this age. Sad Of course, my boys were 90th percentiles by the time they were 2 weeks old and they've stayed there ever since. So by comparison she looks REALLY small.

But to end on a positive note, She's pooping again! Yahoo I went completely dairy free by Tuesday last week and she's pooped everyday since Thursday! Yahoo

Yay for poop! Sorry about the nursing issues. Hope the LC can help!
