Reduction In Weight In Infants Aged 2 Months?
My baby is a boy 2 months 6hr, BB / TB last month: 4.5 / 56 then BB / TB this month: 4.3 / 6.1. She is almost full of breast milk, why is she almost full because sometimes she still has additional milk (60-120ml). Only 1-2 times a day of milk and even that sometimes sometimes not every day. Some days, he was in the afternoon, and when he was in a deep sleep, he gave his drink (ASI) delivery time between 3-5 hours. The questions are: 1. Is it normal for my baby BB as I explained above? 2. Is the decrease in bb influenced by the pattern of breastfeeding at night which has little change?
