    Dr worthy?

    Advertisements
    She lost almost a pound when she was sick and she's been better for a couple days now and is SLOWLY getting her appetite back. She used to drink 6 oz most of the time and now she drinks 3-4. Usually ill try to give her another 2 an hour later or so. I don't know if she's too active or what but she is still losing weight I have a baby scale and I weigh her everyday. She was 13.6 when I took her to the hospital and now she's at 12.2. Should I just weight for appetite to pick back up and hope she starts gaining?


    I can't imagine a dr would be able to tell me anything other than giver her cereal but idk

    It couldn't hurt to call the office and ask, IMO. If it makes you feel better, my son doesn't even eat 6 oz a feeding unless he is in a growth spurt.


    I hope she gets her appetite back soon.

    Honestly, at this point if she's still losing, that would concern me. I would certainly at least call the doctor and ask for a professional opinion.

    I would call, too. Weight loss isn't good at that age, no matter how active.
