Re: Breastmilk not Sufficient?
bumping this thread just to say thank you! we just had out 10 month appt today and n gained half a pound in three months! she was just under 18 lbs at 7 months, and now she's about 18 1/2 lbs.
even though in my head i know she's reaching all her milestones, pees/poops are normal, and most importantly she's a very happy normal sweet little baby, i still couldn't help worrying on the way home from the doctor. i like her pediatrician a lot but could only go "mmm-hmmm, interesting" when she said that n should be having x amounts of tablespoons of food a day and how breastmilk is not enough for her anymore.
anyhow, we're doing blw, so i see no harm in encouraging more avocado (she likes it anyhow!), etc but i know that breastmilk is enough. baby girl just got 4 teeth in the last three months, plus she's cruising like crazy, she just started pointing at things, she grew over an inch in the past three months, and she's starting to vocalize a lot more - in other words, there's plenty of development going on! still, it always helps to check on this forum for reassurance.. thanks ladies!
