Quoting Tiger Lily ♥:" My son had an appointment last Wednesday with his pedi. When he was born he was 4 lbs 15 oz. When we ... [snip!] ... c-section, I could read a piece of paper in the nurses pocket that stated (boy- 36 weeks and 5 days - no fluid - IUGR)......"
My DD was born at 5 lbs 8 oz & dropped down to 5 lbs by the time we left the hospital about 4 days later ( She was a 35 weeker & breastfed)
At her one week weight check, she was only 5 lbs 3 oz. So they pushed me to supplement, so I did.
Then at her 2 week weight check, she finally got back to her birth weight of 5 lbs 8 oz.
By one month I quit supplementing all together & she really started gaining weight then.
You can look at my profile to see her weight progress. Long story short, she was 20 lbs by her 9 month checkup.
She didn't have IUGR though. but I just wanted to say that we had a slow start helping her gain weight, but once she did, it packed on fast. I hope that's the case for you guys!
