E-mail me. I have had growing troubles with some of my kids. The critiria is babies should not loose more than 10% of their body weight. But, the other problem is gaining weight. Did Samara have trouble latching or was she too weak to get anything? Has the ped checked her suck? Sometimes it can feel strong but, be inefficient even with a bottle. The solution we found was to "inject" bm with a syringe and tiny catheter into Janie's mouth for 6wks because she has oral low tone (which at the time we didn't know). Gosh, Sandra, if it was me I wouldn't wait until the 3rd. Call the ped and ask for a weight check.
