I am trying to find out in what degree the mother's diet will affect baby's weight gain either weekly or monthly( # oz. gained). In my case, I am a vegetarian and ds did not gain much weight the first month of life and then he started to gain weight very slowly. Right now he's gaining approximately 6 oz. per week and he's getting there thankfully (right now below charts) but i had changed my diet many times so I am not sure what's really working and making him gain more weight than before.
I a very curious if there is any difference at all in different mother's diets in relation to baby's weight gain or not, or if there is a pattern, etc. If I could do something to help my DS gain even more weight I would do it. Right now I am feeding on demand and at night too. He's 4 months right now.
Anyway, thank you for your help.
