weight gain for baby

I would like to seek some advice in regards to my 7 month old daughter.
My main concern is her failure to thrive health wise.
She was born full term an 7lbs 6ozs. She was jaundice a few days later and had phototherapy treatment at hospital. All was going well her weight maintained in between the 50th to 75th centile range.
At 2 months she had her first set of jabs and a day later her eyelids were very red and puffy and she had a rash all over her body. The doctor prescribed hydromol and Aveeno cream. This cleared within 2 weeks.
Her third set of jabs she came out with a rash again which doctors said was eczema. She had it on her face and creases. At this point also her weight started to gradually tail off.
(She was exclusively breastfed up until 5.5 months).
At her 4 months jabs her eczema worsened. I noticed my supply was sufficient for her and I had a lot of trouble trying to maintain my breastmilk supply
We sought advice from a lady who we were recommeded by who gave us a cream which looked like vaseline and had no smell. I applied this cream and overnight her eczema was nearly all cleared.
I was hesitant to use this cream after as I don't know what is in it and I don't want to use steroids on my precious babies skin.
Her eczema still does flare up on her face and in her creases.
At 5.5 months I combination fed her and eventually the little milk I had almost dried up. She poo's every 3-4 days which is very smelly. When she was breastfed she pooed every day.
I have since tried to get my supply up and have been prescribed domperidone from the doctor which has helped but it is not quite there.
I exclusively breastfed my son for 1 year with no problems.
I have recently been to see a homeopath who has prescribed Thuya for my daughter and Pulsatilla for both me and my daughter.
I am yet to receive these items so we have not tried it.
However I am concerned with her weight gain also and loss of appetite. She does not drink a lot. The max I can get her to drink is 4oz. She is very hit and miss with food and eats very small portions. Her favourite food is yoghurt.
Is there anything I can give her that will make her hungrier? I am hoping the thuya will help with the eczema but I am still very concerned about her weight and little appetite.

Any help with be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.

One person has to supervise the case and the remedies.
I am sure you told the homeopath about the loss of
appetite etc and that is all taken into consideration
with the remedy prescription.

Follow your homeopath and if you find that things
are not improving on all fronts after a month or two,
then you could put the case on here and have
another person take it over.

Thank you for replying. I did speak to the homeopath in regards to her weight issue but as I am seeing my GP about it also she did not want to interfere with the matter.
I am not concerned with where my daughter fits as a 'statistic' on a growth chart I am more concerned with her as an individual which is why I put a post on this forum. I believe she is not thriving and still looks the same to me as she did when she was 4 months old.

Hi- The homeopathic remedy is based on her overall state,
there might be some layers to go thru with remedies bc of
the skin. But the treatment should start activating her life
force to clear things and then appetite will improve. You just
have to wait a bit and see what goes on.

Anything suggested on here would be interfering with what
your homeopath is doing and could easily ruin what your
homeopath is doing.

Thank you, I guess that's the reassurance that I need that her appetite will hopefully improve.
I am so worried about her.
I have been told by the homeopath to give her Thuya 6c twice daily for 2 days and repeat in 2 week and the Pulsatilla 30c twice daily for both me and baby. I have received the granules today but I don't know how many to take. They are so small. Can you advise how much I should give her?

Thank you

I would take 3 granules and dissolve in a 1/4 cup of water
for each remedy. Use a plastic cup and stir around a bit
with a plastic spoon.

Take a teaspoon out of this for you and for Baby on
the Pulsatilla and just make up a new batch each day.
Throw away the plastic stuff.

Do the same for the Thuja and on the days you give
Thuja I would not give the baby the Pulsatilla- I would
start that when you are done with Thuja.

The homeopath is trying to get rid of the 'jab' effects with
the Thuja and is looking at Pulsatilla as the constitutional
remedy . btw- check with your homeopath on Mon to see
how they want to dose- or email them now- what I said won't hurt, but everyone
has their own way they like to do this.
