9JUN08

My poor baby girl... Ryan is a little peanut. She's really small but they weren't really worried. Well Monday I took her in to weigh her to put it in her baby book and she was 9lbs 3oz which she was over a month ago. So I talked to a lady there and she put it on the chart and found she was now below the growth curve. So I took her to the doctor and the doctor said let's start supplementing 1 oz of formula after every other nursing. So I did and took her back in on Friday. She had LOST weight! I was so sad. So the doctor decided to do some lab work. She said she's not sure what it is. Ryan is happy, alert, sleeps well, has met all her milestones for her age, etc. The only thing is her weight. So I also drove to Landsthul to talk to the lactation consultant and she helped me with some thing and I have to go back in for a weight check and the lab results. I'm tyring not to get worried but, of course, as a mom it's easier said than done. Please keep Ryan in your thoughts and prayers and I will keep you posted.
