Took Claire to the doctor today. She weighs 7 lbs. 6 oz. That's 6 oz. less than her birth weight. I was shocked! Totally. And I feel like such a bad mom. I knew she was tiny, but I didn't realize she weighed so little.
The doctor thinks that she is not absorbing what she needs from the breast milk. I am going to continue nursing her, but give her 1-2 oz. of formula after each feeding. We will hear results from her blood work tomorrow afternoon. Just to make sure there's nothing else going on. Other than being tiny, she's a really healthy girl.
We're just going to focus on getting some meat on her bones.
