My 6 month old breast fed baby only drinks 5 ounces per bottle. She bottle feeds twice while I work for 8 hours. She is 18 pounds. She was born 8.5 oz?
By weight is fine: She is likely getting much more when nursing directly from the breast.

As long as she's wetting aces diapers in that 8 hrs, is happy after feeds , don't worry. Offer a cup with water, too- it's time to start learning. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Ultrasound measured foetus as 6 weeks 2 days one full week after measuring 5 weeks 6 days (just sac). Heart rate 126 i think miscarriage is likely?
Not necessarily: The fetus is now off by 4 days and the accuracy of us is about 4 days. Since the other measurement was the sac and this is the fetus, the different measurement may examine it all. The sac and the fetus do not always match exactly. The heart rate is normal so likely all is well. In any event, the next scan will be very helpful. Stay positive as these results to not suggest imminent miscarriage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Fetal Problems: This is one of the reasons for ultrasounds during pregnancy. I am not sure what your question is but this finding is seen on ultrasound and the OB will have your baby's doctor be ready at birth or there will be a consult before the birth to let you know what to expect and what this could represent. ...Read more
