I am new here and am so far very excited to have found such an amazing place where parents are able to help other parents of preemies.
My son is 3 months old (1 1/2 adj.) and weighed in at 9lbs, as of his last Dr. visit on Jan. 13 when he was 2 months. My issue here is, we are in the middle of changing ped's because we don't trust the one we were using. She told me there was nothing wrong with my son at that appointment when I knew there was and then 2 days later we end up at a Children's Hospital with IV's and the sort. Anyways, she wanted me to continue to fortify my BM for him but he would throw it up, not spit it up, every time he ate it. I stopped giving him the fortified bottles and he gained 2 pounds that month. The Dr. said that wasn't a significant weight gain and asked that I keep fortifing the bottles at EVERY feeding until further notice. Well, I have went against her wishes and have continued to nurse my son. He eats every couple of hours for about 15-20 min and then we either play or he will nap. I am curious to find out what his weight should be at. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
