    Hi!!!

    Because Thomas is not drinking a lot at all ( had 15 ounces today, that is all he wanted to take) I am a bit worried he is not putting on weight as much as he should. The H/V said he was fine but still wants him checked every 2 weeks.

    So if you could tell me the age of your baby and weight, that would be great, so i can see if Thomas is ok weight wise :) He also has bad stomach aches and is constipated too. When he drinks, his body goes stiff and downwards. I use Aptamil but i bought Cand G omneo comfort to see if it makes things better.

    Thomas is 13 pounds and is 15 weeks old.

    at 15 weeks Brody was 14lb 14oz I was a bit concerned he had only put on 4 oz in 2 weeks. He's due to be weighed on Thursday so hopefully he'll have gained some more.
    He IS a big looking baby though, and I know he's the same weight as some of the older babies I know so don't worry :)

    Aimee weighs 13lb 3oz at 16 weeks. I'm lucky if i get 20oz in a day in her at the minute. She was 8lb 11oz born though so not a great weight gain.

    Damien is 12lb 13oz at 14.5 weeks, and although 6 weeks early, he is not far off babies his actual age. He was 5lb 13oz at birth so has put on 7lb since birth! Sounds loads when I look at it like that.

    He about 20-30oz a day depending on what mood he is in that day :lol: Damien drinks Omneo Comfort (makes their poo green and smell like rotten egg by the way!) :shock:

    Just wanted to add, don't beat yourself up too much about the red book charts, I have certainly leant to try and ignore them because the charts were written using 100 'normal' children. They didn't use prem children, etc. Although they are 'guidelines', every child is different hun. It's hard not to worry when all you want is the best for them.

    I have only just been given the go-ahead for Damien not to be weighed weekly/bi-weekly and he has had fairly steady weight gain since birth, he only has had one dip a few weeks ago, but I'm sure he had a growth spurt then as suddenly all his clothes didn't fit him!

    Since changing to Omneo Comfort, Damien has greatly improved how much milk he will take in one sitting. He was stuck on 4-5oz's since he was 4/5 weeks old till when he was 11 weeks old! Now he usually takes a 5-6oz bottle unless he is being fussy that day, and sometime even takes 7 or 8oz. I feed him on demand but normally it works out at about 4hourly ish with a break between 11pm and 7am.

    Hope that helps hunnie, but try not to worry too much! xx

    hi Aleena weighed 8lbs 11oz, last thursday, at the time she was 7 and a half weeks old.

    HV advised that she is underweight, she should be 9lbs, but to be honest i dont see that much of a big gap therefore im not going to worry.

    Some babies will put on more on one week than another.

    As long as your child is happy, alert and smiling don't worry

    You are not alone.

    I have trouble getting Phoebe to drink her milk.

    She takes between 20 and 28oz a day at the moment and she is 18weeks today.

    At 16 weeks she weighed 13lb 6oz.

    Her birth weight was 7lb 14oz.
