ZJ's Checkup - 6 Weeks Old

ZJ is 6 weeks old! Before we went for ZJ's checkup yesterday, I know I will hear bad news... That he has not gain any weight and I was right.... He gained a mere 200+ g only.

Other than his weight gain problem, Beanie is doing well. Doc suspected that he is not taking enough milk and I think so too. He advised me to check his weight gain every other day or once a week or even after a milk feed. He also advised me to pump my milk out to see how much is he drinking.

I was so sad... I don't have problem with breastfeeding LZ. I BF L for 3 months and Z for 1 1/2 yrs. I think LZdaddy feel lousy too. He always likes his kids to be chubby..... So I will be back to pumping my milk and training him to take the bottle, as well as from me.

Beanie took the 6 in 1 jab.

At birth:
Weight: 3.585kg Weight on Discharge: 3.4kg
Height: 51cm
Head Cir.: 35cm

Weight: 3.6kg
Height: 56cm
Head Cir.: 38cm

He developed fever (38.2C) last night coz of the jab and I fed him medicine. Fever came back this morning again...

Reminds me of Nicholas..he was a difficult baby to please, wanting milk every I decided to express out so I can rest.

Hope ZJ is ok now.

Don't feel so stressed mummy, try to relax and rest well!! It will helps to stimulate your milk flow...take it easy K?
