My 6 week old boy is allergic to soy and dairy. But can't get him to gain weight. He's being breast fed and is eating every 2-3 hours. We are scared they might take him. And we are trying everything but he won't gain. PLEASE HELP. SCARED DAD

He's showing some symptoms of C. Diff. He was 6lbs .01 oz and now he's 6lbs 12 oz.

Have you seen a lactation consultant?

How many diapers is he wetting in 24 hours?

What was his birth weight and what is his current weigh?

Are precautions being taken to get accurate weights? Is he always being weighed on the same scale?
