I finally made an appt today to figure out what is going on with Finley. We think she may have reflux and she isn't gaining weight very quickly. I could tell she wasn't bulking up as quickly as the boys but gave it some time...well yesterday I decided to go to a breastfeeding support group at the local hospital so they could see if she was getting enough milk. Sure enough, they weighed her before and after and she took in 3.8 oz, which they said is great, so it isn't a supply issue

Then she proceeded act super fussy and throw it all up. She does this 1-2 times per day and almost always acts fussy after eating. She also always makes these gurgle noises like milk is trying to come back up. I called the pediatrician and she said it sounds like reflux, especially since we exclusively breastfeed. So, we are meeting with her today to figure it out.

It is possible that Finley is just a slow gainer, it took her a while to regain birth weight too. But the slow weight gain, throwing up and spitting up, and overall fussiness might be reflux. I hope it's a productive appt! I'll update later.

And here's a few recent pics of the little lady:

and big smiles!

Thanks so much *Kiliki* for my awesome summer siggie!
