posted by my LLL on FB, a really important article. I see this all the time, babies who are nursing like champs, but not gaining weight, but it is because they were born at an elevated weight due to circumstances at birth and the drs want to supplement.

This is very interesting. Weston lost 6 ounces after birth, but it was less percentage wise than his siblings (2 of them were within one ounce of his weight), and I had a 'natural' labor with no IV fluids with him. Not just a coincidence I guess!
