Kyleigh's little

I took Kyleigh back to the doctor this week to have her weight checked. She has gained some.... She now weighs 14.5 pounds. She has slipped even further down the growth chart to 7%.  They said they want me to keep nursing as much as I can since that's more important, but that we need to shove calories in her where we can. They aren't concerned but they don't want her to fall off the growth chart completely. So, we are adding another meal (there isn't time to add one) and pumping up everything we give her with extra calories. She is on the move like crazy though so that's burning more up. She has started to wake up several times at night again. I am wanting to feed her because she is so small but I also don't want to start something and then have to retrain her. :/

  1. Oliver fell off the growth chart and now he is a chunker! Just follow K's clues for when she is hungry and she will be great.

  2. I agree with Shelly. If she is happy and energetic, then she is probably doing well. Maybe feed her a meal before jammie time. See if that helps her sleep better.
