Pump for 10 to 15 minutes after nursing and that should increase your milk supply.

When I was afraid I wasn't producing enough milk I began taking a supplement called Fenugreek and it seemed to help.

It can be a number of things from sensitive digestive system or too much milk at once or not being burped in between ounces.

All that matters is that she IS gaining weight. You may not be able to tell because you see her everyday. I have twin boys that were a lot smaller than your daughter at that age. But, they were gaining the appropriate amount of weight.

But it seems that she dNot look bigger even if she gained weight.
She looks small at her age.
Many says that she's not getting any larger..

I'm American so I had to convert everything to pounds.

You want 1 lb per month. After my calculations, you've exceeded that! She's gained 3 lbs in 2 1/2 months!! Her weight gain is fantastic!! I don't see any problems with milk supply because she's gaining wonderfully

Birth weight 6.6 lbs
2 weeks: 7.4 lbs (surpassed her birth weight!)
1 month: 7.9 lbs
2 months : 8.8 lbs
2 1/2 months: 9.2 lbs

She's born by 3 kilos. Then she turned 3.4 by half a month and then 3.6 she she turned one month. Then she she's 4 kilos at her second moth. And now she's 4.2 kilos now that she's 2 months and 2 weeks.. she have her regular check up every month and she had her lips and tongue checked. And I don't have thyroid problems..

She hasn't gained at all? Again, Please list weight history, including lowest weight

How often are you nursing? Are you nursing on cue or on a schedule? Do you have any medical problems like PCOS or thyroid? Have you seen an IBCLC?

She gained weight for about 1 kilo when she turned one month. Ang gained nothing after a month until now. Should I worry for this?

Weight history? Starting with lowest weight as most babies will lose weight the first week.
