Hi, I'm checking to see if I can get some extra feedback on whether my youngest dd is gaining enough weight.
She had her 4 mo check up on Monday and weighed in at 13lbs 7 oz ( 24 in long ) - I was surprised that she had not gained more but the dr said he was happy with her wt gain and that she is in the 50% percentile - she our third and although she weighed the most at birth she is just about the same weight as my son was at 4 mo and I think my oldest was actually a bit more by this point. With my other 2 I exclusively breastfeed until I went back to work at 3 months, and then they were supplemented with formula during the day , and I bf mornings and evenings. With my youngest I am able to pump the 3 days I work ( she recieves 2 four to five oz bottles of ebm while I'm at work - and then I exclusively bf the 4 days I am home. She seems satisfied after she nurses and is a happy and content baby all around - I'm just concerned that she doesn't weigh more at this point considering she was 9 pounds when she was born - I think my oldest had nearly doubled her birth weight at 4 mo , so even though the pediatrician told me she was fine I could use some extra reassurance !
