As far as I know it is mostly diagnosed based on weight. However, because there are othe causes of it such as cystic fibrosis and hormonal issues there could be other factors involved. Personally, I would be following up with your pediatrician for more tests. And I would also be seeing a lactation consultant. I had to supplement with formula with my son. I successfully breastfed my other two children without needing to supplement but with Brandon I was just not making enough milk. It was not really my fault it was a combination of problems but I don't think you should rule that out. As a breastfeeding mother I know how difficult that decision is but I finally decided I had to do what is best for my son and started supplementing. He is in the tenth percentile now for weight.

Are you trying to lose weight or get in shape? Stop by the Mommy Fitness board and say hello.
